Luis Suarez says it is his "dream" to play with Liverpool in the Champions League next season.

The Uruguayan striker was heavily linked with a move away from Anfield in the summer to play in Europe's elite competition, but yet again spoken of his happiness at the club this season.

Liverpool are currently in fourth place, six points clear of Tottenham Hotspur in fifth, as the five-times winners look to play in the Champions League for the first time since 2009/10, as well as making a late charge for the title.

Suarez has made a total of five appearances in the Champions League, playing for Ajax in 2010/11, and scored one goal as they went out in the group stage.

"I dream about playing with Liverpool in the Champions League, yes," Suarez, who recently signed a contract with Liverpool until 2017, told Sport magazine.

"My team-mates have told me that it's something incredible, something truly unique, to play in that competition at Anfield. I'd love to do it. That said, there's a lot of the league left to play. We have to keep doing the things we're doing.


"We know all about those nights at Anfield. Everyone in the world knows about it, knows the club.

"All players appreciate the significance of the Champions League here, and that it's difficult to match Liverpool on that stage."
