Has Luis Suarez Just Left The Door Open For A Liverpool Return?

Has Luis Suarez Just Left The Door Open For A Liverpool Return?

Luis Suarez celebrates his 32nd birthday today, and it seems the Uruguayan sharp shooter has become all nostalgic in his old age, after speaking to German sports magazine 11Freunde.

And what the birthday boy came out with, will have Liverpool fans mildly excited, to say the least.

Asked whether or not he was keeping up to date with Jurgen Klopp's progress with the Premier League leaders, Suarez was glowing in his praise for the German's work.

Anyone who has ever played in Liverpool remains connected to the club for a lifetime. The team plays terrific football and I am very interested in how they will do this year. I think we can still expect a lot.

But when asked the inevitable question of whether he would like to work under the charismatic Reds manager in the future, the Barcelona striker seemed to not completely dismiss the idea.

Suarez, who scored 82 goals in 133 appearances in a four season spell on Merseyside, admitted that "every player would like to train under Jurgen Klopp".

The frontman, who's current contract with the La Liga giants comes to an end in June 2021, courted controversy during his time at Anfield, picking up an eight-game ban, after Manchester United player Patrice Evra accused the Uruguayan of referencing Evra's ethnic origin in a flurry of angry words between the two in October 2011's one-all draw.

He may be most infamous, however, for his partiality to sinking his teeth into opponents.

After an incident during his time in Holland with Ajax, Suarez rediscovered his taste for human flesh when he took a bite at Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in April 2013, as the sides drew 2-2, again at Anfield. He was at it for a third time at the 2014 World Cup, where he gnawed at Giorgio Chiellini in Uruguay's final group game against Italy.

Seriously, who gets caught biting three separate men?

Liverpool, this season, have played some mesmeric football in racing to the top of the Premier League pile, led by the technically gifted trio spearheading their attack; Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino.
