The forward says Gerrard and the fans convinced the South American to stay.
It’s been a turbulent few months for Liverpool attacker Luis Suarez after a biting ban, trying to force a move to Arsenal and also some great goal-scoring form.
The hat-trick the 26-year-old netted against West Bromwich Albion at the weekend seems to suggest the Uruguayan is back to his best and happy on Merseyside.
Now Suarez has performed a complete u-turn and cuts a very different figure from the downbeat forward seen in pre-season – naming club captain Steve Gerrard and the Anfield faithful as the reason for a change in heart.
“Steve [Gerrard] spoke a lot to me, he gave me advice and told me what I needed to hear,” the South American was quoted by Goal.
“When I was separated, he told he didn’t like that and wanted me to be with the group. Today I feel very supported by my team-mates.
“The support of the fans was also very important. I always could walk on the street with no trouble.
“I work hard for Liverpool and I will always be thankful to the club.”
Suarez will be lining up against the club that tried to sign the striker when the Reds travel to north London on Saturday to face the Gunners in the Premier League.
Just two points separate the two teams at the top of the division and a good performance from the Uruguay international will silence any saying the player still wants to leave for the Emirates Stadium.
