Liverpool's Luis Suarez wants lengthy Anfield stay
Thursday 31 January 2013
Luis Suarez says he intends to stay at Liverpool for "a very long time".The Uruguay forward took his goal tally to 22 for the season with the opener in Wednesday's 2-2 draw at Arsenal.
The often controversial Suarez has quickly become a cult hero on The Kop since his £22.8m move from Ajax on transfer deadline day two years ago. The 26-year-old says it is a "dream" to play at Anfield and he intends to continue to help the club develop into Champions League challengers once again under Brendan Rodgers.
"I hope to be at Liverpool for a very long time because it's a massive club that kids dream about playing for," Suarez said. "I've been very proud to be at a club like Liverpool and to have made the decision to come here. In two years I've lived through some spectacular and very special moments that I will never, ever forget.
"There have been a few difficult times as well, but with the support of my family, the club and the fans, things have gone well for me."
Suarez continued: "I do feel at home here. When I'm out and about, all I get is support and encouragement and that's very important and when I come to the club I feel like people have known me all my life."
