Luis Suarez: Not intending to quit Liverpool

The Uruguayan striker has netted 25 goals this season - 18 of these in the Premier League - and his excellent form has reportedly attracted the interest of Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

Regarding the latter, the new Bayern coach for next season - Pep Guardiola - is the brother of Suarez's agent, Pere.

But Suarez said: "I always say the same thing, every kid or young player growing up dreams of playing here at Liverpool, and today, here I am, highly privileged doing just that.

"I enjoy every minute to the maximum because it's a great opportunity that my life has presented me and for which I am very pleased.

"I'm here at a club where I always wanted to be and where I always wanted to play, and for that I'm extremely happy.

"I don't know if it's my best form but I do know that I continue to feel comfortable and happy in a side where my team-mates help me a lot.

"That's an important thing for a player. I also think that when you feel good out there on the pitch it shows that things can go well."

The £12million signing of Daniel Sturridge in January eased the goalscoring burden on Suarez, who had almost single-handedly kept the Reds afloat in the first half of the season.

With the new arrival playing as an out-and-out centre-forward, Suarez has been deployed in a slightly deeper position as well as occasionally operating out wide.

It is a challenge he relishes and stressed he was more interested in helping the team rather than beating Manchester United's 19-goal striker Robin van Persie to the Premier League's golden boot.

"A player always has something he can improve upon or something new to learn," Suarez added on the club's official website.

"Recently I've been featuring in positions that I'm not so used to playing in, which I'm happy about. I'm learning how to play in another role which is a good thing for me and will also benefit the team.

"Of course it's a dream for any striker to be the top scorer in the Premier League, but to be honest it's not one of my main aims.

"My focus is getting the team to the highest possible position in the league.

"For sure, I'd be delighted if I were to win the award and even more grateful to the club and my team-mates because it would be thanks to them that I would be receiving any accolade.

"But for now, with quite a few games to go in the season and many other quality goalscorers in the Premier League, it's too early to be thinking about any award."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
