Liverpool supporters are still licking their wounds in the Football Transfer Tavern after their side was put to the sword by an highly impressive Arsenal on Saturday.
The Reds were second best at the Emirates Stadium, but their mood has been drastically improved by the latest reports from star man Luis Suarez over his future on Merseyside.
Mirror Football reports that Suarez has denied any speculation linking himself with a move to Real Madrid in January and instead the Uruguayan insisted that he is ‘ “comfortable and happy” at Anfield.
“I know nothing of any interest from Real Madrid, and I am happy with Liverpool,” Suarez explained in an interview with Sport 890 – a radio station in his native Uruguay.
“In the team we are all really excited, and looking forward to a good season. We have been at the top so far, and we are still aiming at the top – we still have momentum and we can believe that the top spot is marked for us.
“We believe in the team and we believe we can have a really good season – an exciting season.
“The Premier League is the best league there is. The stadiums, the atmosphere and the fans make football here so entertaining.”
The Reds were well beaten on Saturday but still created chances and Suarez explained that he was pleased to see the strong team spirit in the side despite the defeat.
“When I was separated (from the squad), the players told me they didn’t like that and wanted me to be with the group,” he added. “Today I feel very supported by my team-mates, and I appreciate their support.
“The support of the fans was also very important. I always could walk on the street with no trouble. I was never threatened or anything like that – the people told me to stay.
“I feel part of things at Liverpool. It is my home. I am comfortable and happy here – I work hard for Liverpool and I will always be thankful to the club, and to my team-mates.”
The Uruguayan striker has netted six goals in his six appearances and has already formed a fearsome partnership with Daniel Sturridge in attack for Rodgers’ side – something that offer Reds fans hope for this season and the future at Anfield.
Is Suarez bound to stay at Anfield for the remainder of the 2013/14 campaign? Let us know your thoughts below.
