The controversial striker appeared to confirm overnight reports that he will not be leaving Anfield
Luis Suarez last night admitted that he will be staying at Liverpool.
The Uruguay forward is in Tokyo on international duty, and although he refuses to apologise for agitating for an Anfield exit, the striker looks set to remain at Anfield.
He told newspaper El Observador:
“For now, due to all of the people’s affection (for me), I will be staying.”
The newspaper reports appear to confirm what broadcast journalist Martin Charquero last night claimed on his Twitter, saying that Suarez had been convinced to stay by the fans’ treatment of him in recent weeks.
“Luis Suarez confirms to me he will not leave Liverpool. The support of the fans has influenced his decision,” Charquero said.
“Suarez see it as likely that he’ll sign a renewal (extension) to the contract that binds him to Liverpool.”
