One day, when he’s 35, on the back of a few Ballon d’Or awards with Barcelona, we might see Luis Suarez back at Anfield…
The Uruguayan left Anfield in 2014, and in that time has already scored 54 goals – 29 this season before February – proving what we already learned during his time on Merseyside – that he’s one the world’s very best players.
In his absence we’ve floundered, although we at least have Jurgen Klopp in charge now – who will hopefully take us forward.
Asked about his time with Liverpool, Suarez told ESPN (via the Guardian), that if he ever were to move back to England it’d be to us.
“You never know what will happen in the future,” he began. “If I was to return to England, it would be to play for Liverpool – not for any other team.
“I have missed the fans. The atmosphere [at Anfield] is incredible, it’s incredible. Everyone that has played for Liverpool knows how important the supporters are. They know that they are in my heart.”
Suarez recently turned 29, which would usually be the age a player begins his decline – but as his game has never been based on pace – more sheer genius – he’s likely got plenty more years at the top, especially considering he’s currently playing the best football of his career. (Scary when you consider the numbers he racked up during his final campaign in England.)
Bar Steven Gerrard, Suarez is the best player we’ve seen at Liverpool in the Premier League era, and we’d of course welcome him back with open arms.
A situation where that could be possible though won’t arise for many a season, and in that time – we might have finally unearthed his replacement!
