Suarez keen to stay at Liverpool?

6:21 am on 20 March 2012

The Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has insisted he is happy to stay at Anfield, following speculation linking him with a move away from the Premier League football club.

There have been reports the fall-out from the 25-year-old Uruguay international's eight-game ban for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra and the flak he received from opposing fans, would either lead Suarez to walk out on English football or Liverpool to sell him.

But Suarez, yet to complete a full season in the Premier League having joined midway through the previous term, dismissed such suggestions.

Suarez scored Liverpool's opener in yesterday's 2-1 win over Stoke which put his side into the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Afterwards he dedicated his 11th goal of the season to Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba, who is critically ill in hospital after collapsing on the pitch at Tottenham with a heart problem.
