Liverpool have pledged their continued support to controversial striker Luis Suarez by offering him a contract extension beyond his current deal, which expires in 2016, according to the player himself.
The Uruguayan international has had the club’s backing through the racism row with Manchester Utd’s Patrice Evra this season and, responding to speculation linking him with a move away from Anfield, Suarez said he is keen to sign on at Anfield.
Speaking to Uruguayan newspaper El Pais, he said, “I would like to stay. Despite everything that happened, I’m happy here, on and off the pitch… and at the club they’re happy with me and want me to stay.
“I have a contract until 2016 and they already want to renew it for me. The coach still believes in me and that’s very important, especially after having been out for eight matches.”
