Striker Luis Suarez has stated his desire to win over the fans after revealing he decided to stay at Liverpool 'some weeks ago'...
Despite agitating for a move for much of the summer, star striker Luis Suarez has insisted he is happy at Liverpool and looking forward to playing for them again.
Speaking to reporters in South America as he prepares for international duty, the Uruguayan commented: "I made the decision to stay at Liverpool some weeks ago, and I want to stay and work for the team from now on.
"I will go back to Liverpool to play, and I hope to be the same player the fans can trust.
"I said I wanted to play in the Champions League, but when that didn't happen, I knew I'd be happy with life to have my future at Liverpool."
The 26-year-old, who is seven games in to a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in April, added: "Of course, I am not playing. I just want to concentrate on getting ready to play for Liverpool again.
"It is good I will be able to play in Uruguay. We have four matches coming up that will decide if we go to the World Cup, and I want to be important in those games."
Amid much debate over the merits of a release clause which Suarez and his advisers believed allowed him to move, Premier League rivals Arsenal had a series of bids rejected for the player, including one for the bizarre total of £40million and £1.
In the end, Liverpool's very public refusal to entertain the notion of selling the ex-Ajax man, at any cost, has proved successful but the task of all parties reconciling their differences could take some time.
