Liverpool starlet Luis Suarez has been quick to dismiss any speculation with regards to where his future lies next season, confirming he is firmly focused on working at Anfield next season. The Uruguayan recently signed a bumper four and a half year deal back in December, making him the highest earner at the club following his incredible return to first team action between September and the Christmas period.
“There is no clause that suggests a priority for a specific team,” he said.
“My head now is focused on the World Cup. My agent tells me what’s there. It’s more speculation than reality.”
The Merseyside club will look to continue their development and growth in the Premier League with the number 7 spearheading the attack alongside England’s number 9, Daniel Sturridge. Suarez ended the season with 31 goals, and landed a number of personal accolades, although the disappointment of not winning the league title has no doubt affected the entire squad. Speaking of his tears shed against Crystal Palace a fortnight ago:
“I was so angry on the inside. A week before we had real hopes of winning the league and after the Palace game, we knew that it had gone.
“We had lost the chance. I felt frustration and rage at the fact that the opportunity had been lost.
“I covered my face because I was so hurt and frustrated. I preferred people not to see me.”
Brendan Rodgers will hope this disappointment fuels his top striker as well as the rest of his team as they hope to improve their squad and first team to cope with Champions League football next season.
