Suarez should be excited by stay says Liverpool legend

Liverpool striker Luis SuarezLiverpool icon Ian Rush believes that Luis Suarez should be excited to return to the first-team.

The controversial Uruguayan openly chased a summer move away from Anfield, citing treatment he has received in the media and a lack of Champions League football as major factors.

He is yet to start a competitive match for the Reds this term, as he continues to serve a ten match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic.

But, with only two games left to run, Suarez is set to return to Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI soon.

Liverpool have enjoyed an excellent start to the season and are the only team in the Premier League with a 100 per cent record after the opening three fixtures.

Part of this has been down to the exciting attacking combination of Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho.

Rush believes that linking up with these two and club captain Steven Gerrard should be an exciting prospect for Suarez, although he believes that he shouldn’t walk back into the team.

“Suarez, when he sees Sturridge and he sees Coutinho and he sees Gerrard, he will be thinking: ‘Hang on, I quite fancy this!’,” Rush told The Mirror.

“Especially with the prospect of getting on the end of those passes that Coutinho puts through. The team are on the same wavelength now and Suarez will be excited about coming back to play with these guys.

“It was a fantastic piece of business from John W. Henry to keep hold of Suarez. It’s great that he stuck to his guns in the face of the interest from Arsenal and the fact that Suarez was saying that he wanted out.

“The ideal scenario for me now would be Suarez still on the bench after six games – because that would mean that Liverpool have won them all.”

Will Luis Suarez walk back into Liverpool’s starting XI? And should he take the centre forward role from Daniel Sturridge?
