Former Liverpool star Luis Suarez admits he would like the chance to play under Jurgen Klopp even if it seems like unlikely.
The Uruguayan striker became a firm fan favourite at Anfield across his three-year stay before leaving for Barcelona for a reported €82.3m deal.
In that time, Suarez had managed 82 goals and 47 assists in 133 appearances across all competitions and capped off his final season at Liverpool by being named the Premier League’s Player of the Year and winning the Golden Boot award.
Since arriving at Barcelona in 2014, Suarez’s profile has only grown stronger with an impressive 167 goals and 89 assists in 223 games despite the fact that he’s had to share the scoring responsibilities with Lionel Messi.
However, the 31-year-old wouldn’t say no to the prospect of working with current Liverpool boss Klopp.
“Currently we work for two different clubs, so that’s not an issue for me at the moment,” Suarez told 11Freunde. “But yes, every player would like to train under Jurgen Klopp.”
The Reds have since recovered from Suarez’s exit with their own new attacking trio in Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
The free-scoring trio have played a vital role in Liverpool’s climb up to the top of the Premier League standings this season, where they currently hold a four-point advantage over Manchester City.
And Suarez is confident there is more to come as the club bid to win their first league title since 1990.
“Anyone who has ever played at Liverpool remains connected to the club for a lifetime,” added Suarez.
“The team plays terrific football and I am very interested to see how they do this year. I think we can still expect a lot.”
Klopp’s side will next take on Leicester City in the Premier League in January 30 at Anfield, while Suarez’s Barcelona team will face Sevilla tonight in the first leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final tie in Andalusia.
