Luis Suarez: ‘I’ll Stay at Liverpool Because of the Support From The Fans,’ Says Report

luis suarez1 Luis Suarez: Ill Stay at Liverpool Because of the Support From The Fans, Says Report

Luis Suarez looks likely to stay at Liverpool Football Club due to the support he’s received from Liverpool supporters who helped influenced his decision, according to reports coming out of the Uruguay national team camp.

The Uruguayan striker is in Asia this week, playing for his country in an international friendly against Japan (where he scored a goal against the Asian superpower).

According to Uruguayan newspaper El Observador, Suarez told a reporter in Japan that “For now, because of all the affection of the [Liverpool supporters], I would be staying.”

Meanwhile, Sport 890 reporter Martin Charquero is reporting that sources close to Suarez confirmed his decision to stay at Liverpool FC, and that Suarez looks likely to sign a contract extension.

If the reports are true, this is brilliant news for Liverpool FC, Suarez and the Liverpool faithful. Plus it will certainly give the club a boost in the Premier League this season. For Arsenal, it’ll be another blow to their struggle to make a significant signing in the 2013 summer transfer window.

Suarez still hasn’t made an apology to Liverpool supporters, but it appears that he’s taken the first step to get back into the good graces of the Anfield faithful. His protracted transfer saga this summer was ugly, but after PFA Chief Gordon Taylor said that it would be impossible for him to leave Liverpool in this transfer window due to the confusion over how his contract was worded regarding a release clause, Suarez had no option other than to continue playing for the Reds this season.
