The Uruguay international has just been voted both the PFA and the FAW Player of the Year after a stunning campaign in front of goal by Suarez.

The 27-year-old has so far managed to hit the back of the net on an incredible 31 occasions in total in just his 32 Premier League outings in this campaign, more than any other player in the top flight.

And now the South American has confirmed that it is his intention to one day play for the club he represented with such distinction before joining the Merseyside giants in January 2011 for £22.8m, Eredivisie champions Ajax.

“I’ve always said on one day I will return at Ajax. Even if the manager doesn’t want me, I’ll go. For sure!” Suarez told Helden magazine.

“Ajax was a very important step in my life. My wife Sofia and I are crazy about Amsterdam and the lifestyle, the respect from and for everyone.

“We had a happy life and could live there in peace. We walked a lot through Amsterdam.’

“Ajax was the ideal club for me and I learned a lot there. I credit Ajax for teaching me to use both feet, but also how to play without the ball and how to be a team player.

“Martin Jol gave me a lot of confidence. I was honoured when he made me captain of the team and I felt responsible.”

Suarez scored 111 goals in just 159 matches in all competitions for Ajax in three-and-a-half campaigns in the Dutch capital, including 81 strikes in only 111 top-flight games.
