Jeffren: From scoring against Real Madrid to the UAE second division in 10 years

Jeffren Suarez has just completed a transfer to Al-Thaid, a team that is currently placed bottom in the UAE First Division, which is curiously the second division in the country.

This move comes a decade after he scored in Barcelona‘s famous 5-0 Clasico victory over Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid.

The 33-year-old has had eight clubs in 10 seasons after bursting onto the scene with Barcelona, including Sporting CP, Real Valladolid, KAS Eupen, Grasshoppers, AEK Larnaca, Slaven Belupo and now Al-Thaid.

Jeffren has been without a club for a season, after only playing 21 matches with the Croatian side Slaven Belupo, during which time he scored just one goal.

His youth international career saw him share a stage with Gerard Pique, Diego Capel, Antonio Adan, Juan Mata and Thiago Alcantara, but he chose to represent Venezuela as a full international, achieving little success.
