According to a report in the Uruguayan press, Luis Suarez admits he could well stay at Liverpool having claimed (in typically skin crawling fashion) that he’s been won over by the support of the club’s fans.
With the Reds refusing to do business with Arsenal and no alternative clubs declaring an interest, the striker appears to be weighing up a u-turn of epic proportions following a week on bread and water, a telling off from Brendan and a stint training with the reserves.
Speaking to Uruguayan newspaper El Observador from Tokyo, where’s he’s currently on international duty, the 26-year-old stated:
“For now, because of all the affection of the people, I’ll be staying [at Liverpool].”
The report seems to back up tweets posted by Uruguayan broadcast journalist Martin Charquero who claimed a Merseyside stay was on the cards.
“Luis Suarez confirms to me he will not leave Liverpool. The support of the fans has influenced his decision,” Charquero wrote.
“Suarez see it as likely that he’ll sign a renewal (extension) to the contract that binds him to Liverpool.”
It wouldn’t surprise Arseblog News if the above quotes were all guff but at this stage an end to the saga, whatever the outcome, would be welcome.
