The South American finally seems to have excepted the Reds’ stance.

Luis Suarez has decided to stay with Liverpool after a summer of unrest for the striker and Arsenal looking to sign the 26-year-old, after captain Steven Gerrard had talks with the Uruguayan, reports the Mirror.

Suarez was trying to engineer a move away from Anfield and relations between the forward and manager Brendan Rodgers were at an all time low as a result.

Yet Gerrard decided to try and calm the situation, with the huge influence the England international has at the Merseyside club and now things appear to be amicable once again.

The attacker is not eligible to play for five more matches due to a ban dished out to Suarez for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic last season.

Yet the South American was present for the Reds’ first Premier League match of the new season on Saturday, watching his team mates secure a 1-0 victory over Stoke City.

New signing Kolo Toure is delighted that Suarez is staying and believes that the side will be a lot stronger with their top-scorer in the team.

“Luis Suarez was defending what he wanted, the club was defending what they wanted,” the defender was quoted in the Mirror.

“The club know that by keeping him we are going to be really strong because he’s one of the best strikers in the world.

“I believe what the club did is right. We all wanted him to stay. You never want one of your best players leaving to go to another team.”

After getting off to a winning start Liverpool will now be hoping that the club can continue the good momentum, with Daniel Sturridge providing the winning goal in the absence of Suarez this weekend.
