Damián Nicolás Suárez Suárez (born 27 April 1988) is an Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Getafe CF as a right back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Montevideo, Suárez played four seasons with hometown's Defensor Sporting, winning the 2008 national championship. In early June 2011 he moved to La Liga with Sporting de Gijón, signing a three-year contract.[1]

Suárez made his league debut on 11 September 2011, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–2 away loss against CA Osasuna.[2] During his first season, which ended in relegation, he was mostly used as Alberto Lora's backup.

On 24 July 2012, Suárez rescinded his link with the Asturians[3] and joined Elche CF in Segunda División.[4] He scored his first goal in Spain on 2 March 2013, netting his team's first in a 2–1 win at Recreativo de Huelva.[5] He appeared in 33 matches during the campaign, as the Valencians returned to the top division after a 24-year absence.

Suárez scored his first goal in the main category of Spanish football on 30 March 2014, through a penalty kick for the first in a 1–1 away draw against Villarreal CF.[6] On 7 July 2015 he moved to fellow league team Getafe CF, after agreeing to a three-year deal.[7]

International career[edit]

Suárez represented Uruguay at the 2005 FIFA U-17 World Championship and the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[8]
