Barcelona star striker Luis Suarez has admitted that he still carries Liverpool in his ‘heart.’
The Uruguay international came close to leading Liverpool to the Premier League title before making a move to the La Liga giants Barcelona.
Suarez became a cult hero at Liverpool during his spell at Liverpool. The 29-year-old netted 31 goals in 33 league games in his final season for the Reds.
Despite leaving the club two years ago, Suarez admitted he still carries the club in his heart and will treasure his memories of playing at Anfield.
“I had a moment at Liverpool when we lost the game and played really badly, and they helped get us up. This is really good for players and we like that,” Suarez said on a new Liverpool TV documentary ‘This is Anfield’ (via Mirror).
“I had a few really good moments. My debut, when I played the first game, was an amazing moment for me. When I scored – it was a dream for a player.
“And when we won against Manchester City, when we had a really good chance to win the Premier League.
“When I came back last year to play with Stevie and Fernando, that was a really good moment. I have a lot of moments in my heart from Anfield.”
Liverpool have struggled to fill the void left by the Uruguay international’s departure.
Suarez scored 59 goals for Barcelona last season and has already netted seven goals in six appearances for the Catalan giants this term. The 29-year-old has also scored 45 goals in 84 international appearances for Uruguay.
Liverpool take on Derby County in the League Cup tomorrow evening.
