Following Luis Suarez’s brilliant four goal performance against Norwich on Wednesday night, I am sure the thoughts of, “what would we do with Suarez?” crossed the minds of many Liverpool fans.
The Uruguay striker put in a masterclass display against Norwich and he just showed the whole world how good he is. Messi and Ronaldo may be grabbing all the headlines right now in the world of football, but Liverpool’s very own number 7 is not too far off.
In the summer, there was continually speculation linking Suarez with a move away from Liverpool with Arsenal having made a £40million plus £1 bid which was rightfully turned away by the club. One can understand Suarez’s desires to want to leave and play in the Champions League; his abilities certainly deserve to be playing at the highest level.
After a lot of thought and convincing from Steven Gerrard, Suarez decided to stay at Liverpool for this season and help the side get into the top four. The Liverpool striker is certainly doing his fair share of helping the club achieve its goals.
With the January transfer window fast approaching, you can be sure that there will be continued speculation linking Suarez with a move away from Anfield. But the striker himself has said that he will remain at Liverpool until the end of the season; that is brilliant news for all Liverpool fans.
“I think we can achieve what we set out to do,” Suarezt told Marca when asked about Liverpool’s Champions League chances. “My aim is just to help make the team better. My job is just to score the goals that mean we keep winning games and get as high in the table as possible.
“I am happy to be in the Premier League, the best league there is. I am happy here and I will stay. I don’t know about challenging for the title, but we want to be as high up in the table as possible and do as well as we can. I think we can achieve our target.”
What happens come the end of the season will largely depend on where Liverpool finish in the Premier League. If a top four place is achieved then chances are very high that Suarez may just decide to stay on at Anfield and play in the Champions League with us next season. If the Reds fail to make the top four, then I think we may have seen the last of Suarez in the famous red shirt.
