David Suazo hopes for career re-ignition on return to Cagliari

Massimo Cellino and Cagliari appear content by Calcio standards. The club continues to make profits on many players that pass through its ranks while maintaining Serie A status. With the new season in sight and the departure of Alessandro Matri confirmed, Cagliari has now opted to turn to familiar face to be replace Matri and become an important threat to opposition defences. Just 4 years since his departure, David Suazo is primed for a return to Sardinia.
Suazo has enjoyed the highs and lows of professional football with the Rossoblu. He began to shine as a goalscoring talent with the club in Serie B before translating his skills to the top-flight upon their return in 2004. The Honduran’s overall game improved over time and he developed into a player who would be deemed worthy of an honourable accolade in the form of Serie A’s Foreign Footballer of the Year in 2006 (admittedly Suazo shared the accolade with Kaka, still some feat for a Honduran plying his trade in Sardinia). Suazo would continue to be labelled a hero by the Cagliari faithful but a departure for a bigger club seemed inevitable going into 2007.
His departure from the Stadio Sant’Elia was initially somewhat confusing with both Milanese clubs claiming to have signed the Honduran forward. The monetary value of the move was of great benefit to Cagliari so it was just a case of who Suazo preferred and it soon transpired Inter was to be the chosen destination. A reasonable year at Inter went by before the arrival of a new Coach in the shape of Jose Mourinho. Suazo would soon find himself cast into the sidelines as Mourinho’s plans took shape. Loan spells with Benfica and Genoa would follow but the Honduran never appeared settled and seemed to go through a period of picking up niggling injuries that would eat into what already little playing time was available to him. Quite possibly, like many players before him and likely many to come, he began to believe his own hype as opposed to looking to continue developing his game. The criticism of him being lethargic and laboured in his movement in more recent appearances would indicate such a possibility.
Returning to Cagliari in view of what has happened to him since departing appears a move entirely reasonable in judgment, as Suazo seemed to revel in the role of the goal-scoring saviour as opposed to just being another member of the squad. Competition will of course be fierce as it is at every club in the top tier of Italian football but Suazo will be afforded more time than most thanks to the memories of his golden period at the club.
Of course the deal has yet to be completed but all signs indicate to a reunion happening very soon. Suazo’s reputation has only suffered since departing Sardinia – it turned out the grass was not greener for the Honduran and returning to the club where he produced his career-best form would seem the ideal surroundings for him to refind the touch that had eluded him on his travels.
