Luis Suarez is happy to stay at Liverpool


Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has said he is very happy at his current club and wants to stay at Anfield for many years. The 25-year-old from Uruguay has been linked with a January move to wealthy Manchester City, but he told Liverpool's website: "It's about enjoying myself and trying to be here for as many years as I can." "I'm at a club where I'm very happy, my family is happy, I've got fantastic team-mates and a manager from whom I'm learning so much. I'm at a club where I've always wanted to be," he added. The Uruguay striker signed a new deal at Liverpool this summer.

He has been showing good form this season, scoring 11 goals (8 in the Premier League) in 16 appearances. Luis Suarez joined Liverpool in January 2011 for a hefty fee, 22.7 million pounds. He has made 68 appearances for the Anfield club and has scored 32 goals so far.

"As a player, it's vital to have the backing of your manager and so I think that the confidence Brendan Rodgers is showing in myself and the team as a whole is very important and it's down to us to repay that trust out there on the pitch," Suarez said. "The other important thing is that the squad is very united. In spite of not getting the results we would have liked, we have a great spirit of togetherness and let's hope we can continue to pick up points."

Manager Brendan Rodgers has said there will be no "bidding war" for the striker who moved from Ajax to Liverpool in 2011. "If we lost Luis then we have no strikers, so I can't afford to lose anyone," Rodgers said. "He is certainly not anyone we want to sell or move. We want to add to the squad."

Suarez also had a few controversial moments during his time in England. He was found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra, banned for eight games and then criticised for his decision to refuse Evra's handshake when the two came face-to-face at Old Trafford.

Liverpool will play Wigan at home on Saturday and Luis Suarez is the favourite to score the first goal of the game, 10/3 at Bet365.
