In his country, Suvrijn represented hometown's Fortuna Sittard (helping it promote to Eredivisie in his debut season, as champions) and Roda JC, playing in a total of 209 games in the top division, in seven seasons. With the latter club, he scored twice in 31 matches in the 1986–87 season, helping it finish fourth and qualify for the UEFA Cup.
In 1989, Suvrijn signed with French club Montpellier HSC, helping it win the domestic cup in his first year - he missed the final due to injury - and contributing decisively to the club's sixth place in Ligue 1 in 1991–92, playing almost exclusively in midfield. After only nine matches in the following campaign, mainly due to back problems, the 30-year old decided to retire, staying closely related to France, and became a players agent.
He went on to gain nine full caps in two years, being called to the squad for UEFA Euro 1988 in West Germany. In the finals, Suvrijn played two games for the eventual champions, totalling four minutes: in the group stage 3–1 win against England, he substituted Marco van Basten, scorer of all of the team's goals in the match; in the semifinals against the hosts (2–1), he played the last minute in the place of injured Erwin Koeman.
