After a stunning 2013/14 campaign with the Reds, transfer rumours linking the Uruguayan international with a move to the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona have been inevitable.

But the 27-year-old signed a new long-term contract at Anfield in December and after helping the club back into the Champions League with 31 Premier League goals, Suarez is content on Merseyside.

“I signed the contract because I love it here and I’m so happy here. If you’re not happy here you don’t sign any contract,” he told Sky Sports News.

“Liverpool’s team for me is one of the best in the world because nobody here in the dressing room thinks I am better than another and the people here inside Melwood work very well.

“I love it here and this mentality I like because maybe in some other dressing rooms I am bigger than you and another bigger, it’s difficult for the team-mates to play together on the pitch in something like that.”

Suarez has previously spoken about looking forward to experiencing the big Anfield European nights, and now he is relishing the opportunity to play in UEFA’s elite competition.

“The most important thing was to focus on the Champions League because the last four or five years Liverpool, the players, is a good moment for the comeback to a step on the Europa League to Europe’s top,” he added.

“We know how difficult the Premier League is, because you never know what they are doing and I think maybe this year (Manchester) City have more players by then and Chelsea as well, (Manchester) United.

“Is difficult but in football it’s a dream, because the stadium is unbelievable, the fans are the 12th player because they help so much.

“In my career they know what is important and myself and my family as well because they help so much.”

Earlier this week, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers also played down speculation surrounding Suarez, saying there will be no repeat of last summer’s long and dragged-out saga.
