Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has revealed that he plans to stay at the club for “a very long time”.
The Uruguay international scored his 18th league goal of the season during the Reds’ 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday night, taking his tally to 22 for the campaign in all competitions.
And, despite routinely courting controversy during his two-year stay in England so far, Suarez insists he has never contemplated leaving Liverpool.
“I hope [to be at Liverpool] for a very long time because it’s a massive club that kids dream about playing for,” Suarez told the club’s official website.
“I’ve been very proud to be at a club like Liverpool and to have made the decision to come here. In two years I’ve lived through some spectacular and very special moments that I will never, ever forget.
“There have been a few difficult times as well, but with the support of my family, the club and the fans, things have gone well for me.
“I do feel at home here. When I’m out and about, all I get is support and encouragement from the local people and that’s very important, and when I come here to the club I feel like people have known me all my life. That also helps a great deal to making me feel so at home.
“I hope to be able to help out the team for as long as I possibly can while trying do something to make the club and the fans very happy.”
Liverpool currently sit in seventh place in the Premier League table, seven points behind fourth-placed Tottenham.
