Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has revealed the support of the fans convinced him to stay at Anfield in the summer.

The Uruguayan was the subject of frenzied transfer speculation in the last window with Arsenal and Real Madrid heavily linked with him.

The Gunners submitted a £40 million and £1 bid for Suarez, but the Reds swiftly rejected it.

And the striker who has been in top form since returning from his biting suspension revealed the fans kept him out of Arsenal’s grasp.

“When I was separated (from the squad), the players told me they didn’t like that and wanted me to be with the group,” he said.

“Today I feel very supported by my team-mates, and I appreciate their support.

“The support of the fans was also very important.

“I always could walk on the street with no trouble. I was never threatened or anything like that – the people told me to stay.

“I feel part of things at Liverpool. It is my home.

“I am comfortable and happy here – I work hard for Liverpool and I will always be thankful to the club, and to my team-mates.”

Suarez also believes Liverpool are well placed to sustain a title challenge.

“We believe in the team and we believe we can have a really good season – an exciting season,” he added.

“The Premier League is the best league there is. The stadiums, the atmosphere and the fans make football here so entertaining.”
