Luis Suarez Happy at Liverpool Regardless of Champions League Qualification

While many pundits have speculated for some time that Liverpool striker Luis Suarez’s future has hinged up the Reds’ ability to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League, the prolific Uruguayan goalscorer has explained that it is not the sole factor in him remaining at Anfield.

The mercurial 27-year-old has arguably been the Premier League’s top performer this season, putting in 24 goals despite missing the first six games due to suspension. Following a summer of uncertainty that linked him to both Arsenal and Real Madrid, Suarez has signed a new contract and has led the Reds to a top four position.

Speaking to FourFourTwo magazine Tuesday, Suarez was asked if the Champions League was the deciding factor for him going forward, or if he would stay even without a birth in Europe’s premier club competition.

“I think so. I signed my new contract because I’m very happy here and I want to stay where I’m enjoying football and life,” he said. “Playing in the Champions League isn’t dependent on that. I’d actually prefer not to win this Golden Boot and for Liverpool to qualify for the Champions League this season. Any player would miss the Champions League. We’ve not been good enough since I’ve been here to qualify, but this could definitely be our year. It would be a frustration not to get fourth because we’ve done everything possible and given our maximum to qualify.”

He also acknowledged that the Premier League title is not lost yet, and that he recognizes the fact that he is currently at the peak of his powers.

“This is my best season yet. I feel in a very good place, physically and mentally,” he said. “Every day, I feel better in this club. I hope to continue down this path because we want Champions League football for Liverpool and, personally speaking, I want to continue that mentality throughout the World Cup with Uruguay.”

“I’m 27, at my peak, and I feel very happy within the club because I’m part of the best football in the world—the Premier League,” he continued. “I’m enjoying every game I play and my family life here, which is very important. I like winning. I hate losing—I’ve done enough of that. I’m one of the best players in the world, so having the opportunity to win everything—and losing only occasionally—is what drives me. I’m ambitious. I want to win and won’t stop until I score one, two or more goals.”
