Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has signed a new long-term deal at Anfield, rumoured to be a 5 year long deal and making him the highest paid footballer in Liverpool’s history.
Suarez who joined Liverpool from Ajax in January, has been in sensational form since returning to action earlier this season and has scored 17 goals in 11 Premier League games so far in the 2013-14 season. Suarez said:
‘I am delighted to have agreed a new deal with Liverpool and have my future secured for the long term. We have some great players and the team is growing and improving all the time. I believe I can achieve the ambitions of winning trophies and playing at the very highest level with Liverpool. My aim is to help get us there as quickly as possible.
‘Without doubt the backing I have received from the Liverpool fans has influenced my decision. I am so proud to represent them and go out to do my best for them every time I pull on the shirt. We have a special relationship; they have love for me and in return I love them back. I will always do my best for them and hopefully we can achieve success together.’
Manager Brendan Rodgers added:
‘This is fantastic news for everyone associated with the club; the team, the owners and most importantly the supporters. Luis is a world-class talent and securing his services is crucial for what we are trying to achieve here. What’s most important and most exciting is that, at just 26 years old, his best years are still ahead of him and we now know we’ll be seeing him reach that potential in a Liverpool shirt.’
