Suarez talks about key phone call from Rodgers

There have been only a handful of forwards who have been as successful and influential as Uruguayan icon Luis Suárez.

From his entry season to Europe with FC Groningen to his introduction to the continent with Ajax Amsterdam and then a rise to prominence with Liverpool, Suarez has been at the forefront of advanced debate for more than a decade.

But it was a key phone call from Brendan Rodgers that kept the Salto native at Liverpool, ending an additional two glorious years at Anfield for the now Atletico Madrid star.

In an interview with (with quotes provided by the Echo of Liverpool) in the run-up to his return to Merseyside tomorrow as Mattresses Clash with the Reds of Jürgen Klopp and in need of a three-point loot, Suárez shed light on the situation and what was about to be and what was not;

“I think I had been at Liverpool for a year and a half when Brendan took over in July 2012. At that time, I had the opportunity to sign for other clubs that were contacting me, but he called me when I was in Uruguay on vacation, to tell me that he had another way of thinking, that he wanted to change the club and its philosophy, that he wanted the club to return to the Champions League and fight to win great trophies, that he was going to make the team play great football.

He asked me to believe and trust him. I enjoyed that talk. I liked his conviction, the philosophy he wanted to implement at the club, so I spoke with my agent and with the club to tell him that I didn’t want to leave, that I wanted another chance to succeed at Liverpool ”.

In a revelation corroborated by Arsenal de Football’s chief reporter, London Chris WheatleySuárez wanted to move to Premier League rivals Arsenal in the same summer before Rodgers convinced the Uruguayan to give Merseyside another chance.

Fortunately for Liverpool fans around the world, Suarez remained at Anfield for two more seasons, where he would end up scoring 61 goals in 81 appearances across all competitions, including a total of 31 goals in his final Premier League season during 2013. – 14 campaign.

The homecoming of a dear ex red

Given that Atlético de Madrid currently ranks second in Champions League group B with 4 points with FC Porto, while trailing Liverpool by a five-point margin, Suárez has a chance to put his current employers again in contention for the top spot in the group.

The Uruguayan has been in good shape with Atléti in what is now his second season in the Spanish capital after being kicked out of Barcelona two summers ago by the now fired Ronald Koeman, having scored 27 goals in just 42 appearances in La League. .
