The PFA and FWA Player of the Year thanked fans for their support as he prepares to try to help Oscar Tabarez’s Uruguay side claim their third world title
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is optimistic about his recovery from knee surgery as he looks to play a full role in Uruguay’s World Cup campaign.
The forward was a doubt for the competition after going under the knife in May, but having travelled to Brazil with his international team-mates he looks set to be fit for the majority of the competition.
And though he admitted he is still having to work hard each day in preparation for the tournament, he thanked his fans for all the messages of support he has received.
“Hello to everyone, I wanted to tell you that the knee is getting better. I feel very good,” he told 888Poker.
“I have to go day-by-day but everything is going the right way. I wanted to thank you all for the support I received this week and now my mind is focussed on the World Cup.
“A big hug, thanks a lot again and Arriba Uruguay!”
