'Hope I still do': Luis Suarez on a Liverpool & Premier League return

Luis Suarez gave his thoughts on a Premier League return this week. The former Liverpool star has strong feelings on it all.

Luis Suarez doesn’t see a return to the Premier League happening – unless it was Liverpool. He explained as much to World Soccer Magazine.

“Playing for any team other than Liverpool in England would be hard,” said Suarez.

“I had, and hope I still do have, such a good relationship with Liverpool fans that it would be strange for me to play for somebody else.”

The Uruguayan then admitted he was disappointed that he never won the title with the Reds – though he’s happy they eventually got over the line.

“It would have been special to win the league with Liverpool, but I am glad that their wait is now over,” he said.

“They look like a team that will compete for many seasons to come even if this one has not been the best for them. They are back where they belong.”

Suarez to return?

We’d love it, to be honest. But given Suarez is now 34, it’s difficult to see how Liverpool would make it happen.

Though despite his age, Suarez is still showing himself to be a title-winning player. He joined Atletico Madrid a year ago after a controversial departure from Barcelona before going on to score 21 goals as they won the title.

Given Liverpool’s struggles in front of goal last season, we can easily see a place for Suarez. There’s next to no chance that Atletico would sell, however, and we can’t see the club justifying his wages.

They wouldn’t do it for Gini Wijnaldum, after all.

So we’ll take solace that we won’t see him in the Premier League in different colours. Much like Suarez, we’d find that too strange.
