'Happy' Suarez to Stay at Anfield with or without UCL

Luis Suarez insists that he is "very happy" at Liverpool and says that while he would relish the chance to play in the UEFA Champions League, qualification for Europe’s top club competition is not a perquisite for him to remain at Anfield.

In an interview with FourFourTwo magazine, Suarez, the Premier League’s runaway top scorer with 24 goals so far this season, said, "I'd actually prefer not to win this Golden Boot and for Liverpool to qualify for the Champions League this season.” When asked if he would remain at Liverpool even if the club failed to qualify for the Champions League, the Uruguayan said, "I think so. I signed my new contract because I'm very happy here and I want to stay where I'm enjoying soccer and life. Playing in the Champions League isn't dependent on that."

Liverpool is currently second in the English Premier League standings, four points behind league leader Chelsea, which means that Champions League qualification is well within the club’s reach as long as it remains in good form for the final 10 games of the season. Liverpool has failed to qualify for the UCL for the last four seasons.

"It would be a frustration not to get fourth because we've done everything possible and given our maximum to qualify,” Suarez added. “Everyone says Champions League nights at Anfield are amazing – memories you guard forever. It would be an unforgettable experience and it's been too long since that happened. I think to finish in the top three, which is still possible, would be incredible with the players we have in the squad." Read the original story...
