Christmas came early for every Liverpool fan yesterday, following the announcement Luis Suarez had signed a new long-term contract at the club.
The news came as a surprise to many, considering the forward spent the summer trying to engineer a move away from Anfield in the hope of joining a Champions League club.
Whilst Suarez and the Reds have made a fantastic start to the season and perhaps potentially topping the table at Christmas, nobody expected Suarez to sign a new deal until the end of the season, based on whether Brendan Rodgers men had indeed made the top four.
Sure, the reported £200k a week would have helped, but SportBible yesterday posted on Twitter the real reason they believe Suarez signed his new deal.
Still, any Liverpool fan will no doubt be taking their hat off to Brendan Rodgers – no matter how he got him to sign it!
