Luis Suarez Says He Is 'So Happy' at Liverpool Alongside Daniel Sturridge
However, he insisted life is good at Liverpool to the club’s official website:
I am so happy because when you have a very good striker, and a very good partner, for defenders it is difficult because they have to give their attention to two players - not just one.
If maybe two defenders come towards me, this creates space for Danny. This is important not just for me, but for the team and our confidence.
He is a very good player. He had difficult moments at Chelsea and City, but this is a good time for him and I am so happy with him.
The point Suarez raises about the space created for Sturridge carries much significance.
Suarez has often cut a frustrated figure during his time at Anfield, caused by the lack of genuine talent in the team last season, which saw Liverpool finish seventh despite the Uruguayan banging in 30 goals in all competitions.
Even for the most ardent Liverpool fan, it was difficult to argue against the fact Suarez was better than the team he was playing in, particularly in the first half of the campaign.
However, Brendan Rodgers added Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho in January, giving the trio six months to work on their understanding.
Suspension and injury has kept the three players from playing together this season, but Suarez and Sturridge have already fashioned a superb partnership, scoring 10 league goals between them so far.
Sturridge laid on two for Suarez at Sunderland, while Suarez repaid the favour with a brilliant assist in the recent 2-2 draw at Newcastle. With Coutinho soon to return, Liverpool’s attack looks dangerous.
If Suarez begins to see the formation of a good team—Liverpool are currently two points off top spot—he will surely be more inclined to stay at Anfield come the end of the season.
He added in the interview:
We are trying for progression. He is 24 and I am 26, so we are trying our best to progress for the future of the club.
We know in the last few seasons, Liverpool have been not been in the Champions League and we know we can help the team challenge for the top four.
How many signings do Liverpool need to win the league?
Rodgers has bolstered the defence with Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure and is likely to still have money for a major January capture after missing out on Chelsea attacker Willian, per Neil Jones of the Liverpool Echo.
Stephan El Shaarawy of AC Milan has been linked—per Calciomercato via Football Italia— and if Liverpool continue to show ambition off the field and consistency on it, Suarez’s current happy state of mind may just lead to a U-turn in his desire to leave.
