Luis Suarez’s recent hot streak continued during Liverpool’s 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend. Early in the match, the Uruguayan striker gave Liverpool 1-0 lead, with what was his, league-high, 22nd goal. In traditional Suarez form, he continued to be effective throughout the match, frustrating Tottenham defenders.
After the match, Liverpool captain Stephen Gerrard praised Suarez, he said, “He’s top scorer in the league now and he’s been incredible. I can’t put into words how good he’s been.”
He added, “If he doesn’t win an award this year, he’ll be the best player ever not to win an award.”
Gerrard also emphasised Suarez’s value to the club. He admitted “He’s almost carried this team on his own. At times he was the only centre forward we had.”
To the surprise of many Reds’ fans, Saurez’s great play has not been enough to keep Liverpool near the top four. Liverpool currently sits sixth on the table and are seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
The possibility of missing out on both Champions and Europa League competition next season has fueled questions about Suarez’s future at Anfield.
In early February, Suarez voiced his loyalty toward Liverpool. He told the Daily Mail, “I want to say now that, if you want to know what will happen to me if we don’t qualify for the Champions League, then I will say this: I have a contract with Liverpool and I am very happy here. I will stay.”
However, as time progressed and Liverpool continued to produce disappointing results, the striker appeared more uncertain about his future.

In a February 28 Guardian article, Suarez said, “If Bayern Munich makes an offer I would certainly be willing to listen and think about it,” Suarez said. “It doesn’t mean I will definitely leave, it just means that I will not automatically reject other clubs.”
Bundesliga powerhouse Bayern Munich have shown strong interest in Suarez. The club is rumoured to make a bid as high as £40 million this summer.
