French journalists are happy with Gabriel Suazo in Toulouse: “He is a leader, with strength and character”

66 years had to pass for Toulouse FC to once again dedicate themselves as champions of the French Cup. The distribution led by Philippe Montanier included an inspired Gabriel Suazo who contributed to the victory 5 goals 1 against Nantes at the Stade de France and who, with the title, signed up for the next edition of the Europa League.

The one trained in Colo Colo had a remarkable performance. In addition to providing a great assist on the purple team’s third goal, he appeared as a savior on the goal line to avoid conceding when the score was only 2-0 in favor of his team. Thus, the Chilean crowned his arrival in France in a big way and won an undisputed place in the French cast.

In France they are surprised with Gabriel Suazo

Such is the performance of Cacique’s youth squad that praise does not stop falling in France. For example, Théo Faugère, journalist for the daily La Dépeche, the most important outlet in Toulouse and the Occitania region.was happy with Gabi’s performance and called him an undisputed for the next season in which TéFéCé will have to play the Europa League.

In conversation with DaleAlbo, Faugère stated that Suazo “was very good in the final. In addition to his assistance, when he took it off the line, a game that was decisive because it was just 2 to 0. He was very good during the whole game, at a tremendous level. For me, he showed his strength of character, he was one of the leaders of the team.”.

In addition, he said that this performance comes at a very important moment, because “a month ago, before the league match against Montpellier, DT said that some players were not at his level and that he was going to change for this game and , justice, Gabriel went to the bank with the other players“.

“The fact that the DT said this is very strange because he did not do it before and it was a message. He put Suazo on the bench because he had a series of matches not very good. For example, in the semifinal he did a penalty. When he came back there was a match against Lyon and conceded another penalty and in the last minutes he gave a bad pass that meant a goal. There, Toulouse lost 2-1 and the 2 goals were Suazo’s fault, we gave it a grade of 3 out of 10”, he added.

Gabriel Suazo has the experience that Toulouse needs

The French journalist predicts what is coming for the end of the season in Europe. In this sense, he noted that “Toulouse is practically saved from relegation and will continue as undisputed starter. Everything will be very quiet because there will not be much pressure thanks to the French Cup title”.

“Toulouse will play in the Europa League so they will invest and sign more than usual. The future of Gabriel Suazo, he has a contract and has the experience that Toulouse need to win him.. For me, it will be a point man. He is the only one who arrived in this market that started immediately, some hardly play, but he is indisputable”.

Love the fans and Gabriel Suazo

Along with football, the relationship that the former Colo Colo captain built with the French fans deserves a fairy tale. According to Faugère, “the adaptation was good. There was a period of three matches where he was a little below his level, but since he arrived he was a starter and gave satisfaction. In the group he was good, he interesting that just before the final, there is a well-known market, market Víctor Hugo, where people come to a big party and there were four players from Toulouse and among them was Suazo. He was with a big smile and happy to see so much passion. There is a lot of passion and fans. He is well acclimatized, it is an element that gives him confidence”.

Finally, he was frank when he explained that “the fans have a good impression of him. The first games he won were good and the spirit and conviction he brought here is very appreciated. People like the identity of the fight, which is given to people for the shirt and that was given very quickly. In his interviews that he did, he always made it clear. People identify it, there is a good connection. He is very close to people, the walking thing is a great anecdote because he goes looking for people, there is closeness together with his warmth and his smile”.

In the French Cup, Gabriel Suazo was present in 4 out of 5 possible matches, he played 360 minutes in total and contributed with a goal and an assist. Beyond the festivities, Toulouse will have to turn the page and focus on what will be their Ligue 1 match against Lens, this Tuesday, May 2.
