Luis Suarez hints towards Liverpool exit – Barca and Munich on the prowl
Liverpool star Luis Suarez has finally hinted towards an away move. The Uruguayan striker has hinted towards a possible exit from Anfield this summer. Luis Suarez has announced he would be willing to listen to offers from other clubs.
The 26-year-old is currently preparing for the World Cup qualifiers with the Uruguay national team. They will be playing against Paraguay on Friday.
The former Ajax forward, who is currently the leading goalscorer in the Premier League with 22 goals under his belt, admits he will consider moving to a club with “more prospects” if an attractive offer arrives.
Luis Suarez has attracted a lot of attention from top notch European clubs in the last year. Europe’s elite football powerhouses such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Manchester City and Chelsea showed a lot of interest in acquiring Luis Suarez during the winter transfer window, but the Uruguayan declared he was committed to Liverpool for the long haul.
However, with Barcelona and Bayern Munich continuing to pursuit Luis Suarez, the Nacional bred player has accepted he might move away in the future.
“I am very happy at Liverpool, but you never know in football,” Luis Suarez was quoted in the Liverpool Echo. “A player's ambition is always there, the ambition of wanting to play in elite teams is always there.
“I'm in a world-class team, an elite team like Liverpool. We have to realise we have a new manager who is imposing a philosophy and a way of playing that the players are adapting to as best we can. We hope that it will bear fruit next year.
“If another team comes around with more prospects of competing in international club competition games, which is willing to have me, they are welcome. We would talk to the club, we would see if I want to go, if I don't want to go.”
Luis Suarez also explained that his fiery character was what made him one of the best strikers in Europe. The Uruguayan claims its part of what he is, therefore it’s not possible for him to change.
“If I didn't have the character that I have today on the pitch, I don't think that I would have become the player that I am today,” Luis Suarez added.
“I have a very strange way of playing football. I'm my own severest critic and I realise when I make mistakes. There are times that I get yellow cards that can influence a game. I have improved and I have to continue improving.
“You can lose some things, but you can never lose the slyness, the passion that you have had since you were a kid playing in the street.”
