Suarez will re-evaluate his future at the end of the season, but for now, is committed on his Liverpool ‘dreams’…
Liverpool striker and summer Arsenal target Luis Suarez has admitted he could still leave at the end of the season, but has promised commitment to the Reds for now, he told the Sun.
The 26-year-old Uruguayan made his comeback against Manchester United last week in the League Cup, after missing ten games through suspension for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic last season.
Over the summer he regularly stated his desire to leave the club, because of their failure to qualify for the Champions League, and the ‘unfair’ treatment he got from the English media.
“It was an unusual and difficult summer concerning the chances of Liverpool selling me. Some clubs sounded me out but Liverpool made a decision. My future? I’ll speak again at the end of the season,” Saurez said, ahead of his first Premier League match of the season away at Sunderland this evening.
Despite this, Suarez has promised that he will show a professional on pitch attitude for the remainder of the term, in the hope that Liverpool can achieve a top four finish.
“I want to triumph in England. During the months I was off, I meditated very much because of my desire to break the false image that I believe the supporters have of me at the moment. I am really serious about this. And when I play, I want to stay isolated on the pitch to avoid the provocations from rivals,” he said.
Because of his incident littered history, Suarez can expect a torrid reception every time he walks on to the pitch at an away ground, but reckons the faith and support of the Liverpool fans will help him.
“This is the key to keep things on the level. I know the Liverpool fans are with me. Despite the controversies I have been involved in, I received many letters demanding that I stay at Anfield,” Saurez told the Sun, the paper Liverpool fans detest.
It could be that despite offering an olive branch to Reds fans, in giving at interview to the Sun Suarez could ostracise himself once again.
“Now I am back and my dream is for us to improve on last season and fight for trophies. We have a good squad and have opened the season well after a difficult summer. I have the confidence of manager Brendan Rodgers, who was happy to let me return at a difficult place like United,” Saurez added.
The enigmatic striker scored 30 goals in all competitions last season, and will be crucial to Liverpool’s hopes of achieving anything this term, especially after Coutinho picked up a nasty shoulder injury.
