The Ballon d’Or award winner played for Barcelona between 1954 and 1961 before moving to Inter Milan.

The Spaniard won the prestigious award in 1960 and later coached La Roja at the 1990 World Cup.

“Luis Suarez Miramontes has died this Sunday in Milan at 88 years old,” Barcelona announced on its platform on Sunday.

The deceased was loved in Italy after becoming one of the league’s most celebrated midfielders at Inter Milan under coach Helenio Herrera in the 1960s, whom he followed from Barcelona.

“Saying goodbye to Luisito leaves us with a deep melancholy — the nostalgia of his perfect and inimitable football, which inspired generations, is combined with the memory of a unique footballer and a great, great Inter player,” wrote Inter in a statement on Sunday.

Suarez won two La Liga trophies with the Catalan giants, among other silverware and earning the Ballon d’Or.
