Friends Of Liverpool

Luis Suarez picked up the 2013 Football Supporters Federation

Player of the Year Award on Monday night and gave a fascinating, candid interview about himself and Liverpool’s chances after their infamous 5-0 over Spurs on Sunday.

“It’s important we concentrate and focus on the next game. We know that after Cardiff we have two very, very big games”.

“That will be important to what comes next”.

Suarez paid tribute to Liverpool’s supporters for their faith after his biting ban, admitting he would not have had a future at the club without such backing.

And he claimed that winning over the Liverpool fans after his “difficult year” has been his personal highlight of 2013.

He added: “Coming back to play at Anfield: because after so many difficult moments for me I was able to win the supporters back, and that was unbelievable when I came back to play”.

“They helped me, and that was important for me, for my confidence, and for my family, because they are together with me in this”.

“It’s very special for me (the award) because my hard work on the pitch is recognised. Everybody knows about my problems and my difficult year, but after that I forgot everything and have been able to get back on the pitch”.

“Liverpool are starting to reach their potential and we can play our best on the pitch”.

“It’s very important that we stay together, we keep going, this is very important”.

“If Liverpool don’t have these players I cannot continue my level, because it’s too much”.

“They know I am important, so they try everything to stay together, that’s important for me, but it’s more important for the club.”

Suarez is on fire for Liverpool since returning from his ten-game ban for biting Ivanovic’s arm last Season with a remarkable 17 goals from 11 games since returning in late September to help Liverpool maintain their top-four credentials going into the Christmas period just two points behind League-leaders in second place.

This interview confirms the view that after last Summer and his want-away antics, Suarez is now fully committed to the Liverpool cause at least until the end of this Season.
