Good News For Liverpool As Suarez Insists Champions League Qualification Is Not Dependent On Him Staying

The forward is not pinning his future on top European football.

Luis Suarez has sent a vote of confidence to Liverpool as the Uruguayan insists him staying at Anfield isn’t dependent on Champions League qualification.

Many thought that the forward’s world-class talent meant that he would leave the Reds in the summer if they fail to reach the top tier of European football, but Suarez says that is not necessarily the case.

“I signed my new contract because I’m very happy here and I want to stay where I’m enjoying football and life. Playing in the Champions League isn’t dependent on that,” the 27-year-old was quoted by the Telegraph.

However, with the way Brendan Rodgers’ men are playing currently it’s likely that this scenario won’t become a reality anyway, with the Merseyside club sitting second in the table following a 0-3 Premier League victory over Southampton on Saturday.

Suarez netted his 24th league goal of the season in that game at St Mary’s, which keeps the South American in line to win the Golden Boot this year and many are also tipping the attacker to be named PFA Player of the Year.

Although the Merseyside club would probably resent being called a one-man team – with the likes of Jordan Henderson, Steven Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling having also been in great form – there is no doubting how important the Uruguay international is to their cause.

Yet with Suarez seemingly content currently, there is no telling just where Rodgers can take this team with the striker at the helm.
