Suarez desperate to bring glory back to Liverpool

Liverpool ace Luis Suarez says he's desperate to bring glory to Anfield.

When Kenny Dalglish paid £22.8million for him in January 2011, Suarez briefly feared he would be overwhelmed by the ­famous names in the Anfield ­dressing room.

"If you ask me now what am I dreaming of for the rest of my ­career, I would tell you it is a ­championship with ­Liverpool," Suarez told the Sunday Mirror.

"That is all I want - and usually I get what I want. I have a lot of self-confidence about this now, but before I joined Liverpool... I can admit this now: I was nervous.

"I feared I would be surrounded by superstars in the dressing room.

"Big-time Charlies. But I soon found out they are all really nice, down-to-earth guys."

Suarez added: "Now I am so happy in Liverpool. As a young boy I would dream about playing for a club like this.

"Even when I first bought a ­Playstation, I used to play a football game and I always picked ­Liverpool as my club. So I find it amazing that I now wear the shirt here. I am playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world. Everyone in South America knows that. My career is going fantastic.

"But I could not have done any of this without my wife."
