Suarez hints at Liverpool return

‘If it was my team, it would be a ‘no’ from me.’ Steve McManaman doesn’t back Neymar’s mooted La Liga return…

Barcelona forward Luis Suarez says Liverpool is the only English club he would ever consider playing for.

The 29-year-old Uruguayan has been a massive hit at Barcelona after leaving the Reds after the 2014 World Cup and hopes to stay at the reigning European champions for the foreseeable future.

However should he leave the Nou Camp, Liverpool, where he spent three-and-a-half successful years, would be right at the top of his list of destinations.

“I’d prefer to stay here [Barcelona] for many more years. I know it doesn’t always turn out that way,” Suarez is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

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

Suarez has formed a prolific partnership with Lionel Messi and Neymar for the Catalan giants, but admitted he misses the hustle and bustle of the English Premier League at times.

“Here, three or four teams aside, there is a difference with the smaller teams,” he continued.

“I don’t mean this to sound disrespectful but there are some games where you look at the press and they are asking: ‘Let’s see how many goals Barcelona are going to score today?’

“In the Premier League you never really know what is going to happen. There is very little between the teams.

“You never know what is going to happen, and that is something I miss.”
