Luis Suarez has revealed that he may stay at Liverpool even if they fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

The Uruguayan hot-shot came close to leaving Anfield last summer, citing a lack of top level European competition as a major factor as he openly chased moves to Real Madrid and Arsenal.

However, the Reds dug their heels in to keep their man, and have since agreed a new mega money contract to keep him.

But with a rumoured £70m release clause, it has been speculated that he may well leave at the end of the season if Liverpool miss out on a top four finish.

But Suarez – who has been a controversial character since his 2011 move to the club from Ajax – says that he is happy where he is, and that he may not leave even if Champions League football isn’t achieved:

“I signed my new contract because I’m very happy here and I want to stay where I’m enjoying football and life. Playing in the Champions League isn’t dependent on that.” He is quoted by The Metro.

Suarez went on to say that he is confident that Liverpool – who are only four points off of the top of the Premier League table – have a good chance of finishing in the top four:

“Any player would miss the Champions League. We’ve not been good enough since I’ve been here to qualify, but this could definitely be our year.

“It would be a frustration not to get fourth because we’ve done everything possible and given our maximum to qualify.

“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.”
