Luis Suarez has opened up on his “dream” move to Liverpool Football Club back in 2011 and what it meant for him to represent the Reds.
Love him or hate him, Luis Suarez is undoubtedly one of the greatest footballers to ever don the Liverpool red.
The Uruguayan striker almost single-handedly won Liverpool the title in 2013/14 and scored an astonishing 82 goals in 133 appearances for the Reds before moving on to FC Barcelona in 2014.
While the 30 year old has been at the Catalan club for almost three years now, he still hasn’t forgotten how it felt to secure a “dream” move to Liverpool.
Speaking in his chapter of the ‘What LFC Means To Me’ interview series, Suarez revealed “I never imagined I would get the chance to play” for Liverpool.
“When I was little, Liverpool was one of the biggest clubs in Europe and was renowned throughout the world. So when I found out about the club’s interest in me I was never in doubt because it’s the dream for any player.”
Suarez also revealed that much of the lingering affection he still feels for the club stems from the support fanbase regularly showed towards him, even in his times of adversity.
“At Anfield, the fans get right behind you come what may,” he said.
“The affection that they show to you is just so special, which in turn makes you lift up your head and respond, rather than letting it drop a little. For me, this is just what the Liverpool fans have.”
He was always a class footballer but since leaving the Reds, Suarez has well and truly broken through the world-class quality barrier and cemented his place as one of Europe’s truly elite players.
