Luis Suarez says Liverpool are the only English team he’d join

Posted by

Fan favourite Luis Suarez has been talking to Jamie Carragher, telling the legend-turned-pundit that Liverpool are the only English club he’d consider playing for in the future.

“I’d prefer to stay [at Barcelona] for many more years. I know it doesn’t always turn out that way. But if I had to return to the Premier League, I would only go to Liverpool. I wouldn’t go to another team. It wouldn’t be a move for money,” he said (via Echo).

“I’d also love to play again for Ajax as they allowed me to develop as a player in Europe.”

He went on to discuss the famous Anfield atmosphere, adding that it was one of the things he missed most of all.

“The support of the people in Anfield was incredible… Sometimes I’d go to Anfield and think: ‘Uff! There’s a game today’. You might not be in the best mood or be up for the match – but then I remember we’d go out to warm up and it would totally change my mentality.

“I’d be thinking to myself: ‘I have got to score two or three today.’ The way the people transmitted that to the players was incredible.”

The final major talking point was the pain of missing out on the title in 2014, when defeat against Chelsea and a 3-3 draw against Palace cost us dear. Suarez left Selhurst Park in tears.

“That hurt. That hurt so much. We were so desperate to win it.

“I knew we had a unique opportunity and we were playing so well. It was that desire to get more goals against Crystal Palace that let them back into it and killed us.

“I knew when we drew that game the league was lost. Everyone was sick.

“We spoke about you in the dressing room during that run-in, you know.”
