Luis Suarez signs new contract: A look at his most controversial moments

The highs and lows of the Liverpool striker

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is seemingly never out of the headlines - for both the right and wrong reasons.

Having pushed for a move away from Anfield in the summer only to see Arsenal's £40m plus £1 offer rejected, Luis Suarez has performed the mother of all U-turns and signed a new long-term contract with the Reds that will see him earn £200,000-a-week until 2018.

"I am delighted to have agreed a new deal with Liverpool and have my future secured for the long term," said Suarez.

"We have some great players and the team is growing and improving all the time. I believe I can achieve the ambitions of winning trophies and playing at the very highest level with Liverpool. My aim is to help get us there as quickly as possible.

"Without doubt the backing I have received from the Liverpool fans has influenced my decision. I am so proud to represent them and go out to do my best for them every time I pull on the shirt.

"We have a special relationship; they have love for me and in return I love them back. I will always do my best for them and hopefully we can achieve success together."
