Barcelona star Suarez: ‘Liverpool is so important in my life’

Barcelona's Luis Suarez has heaped praise on the Liverpool Football Club ahead of this weekend's friendly in London.

The Uruguayan striker will reunite with his former team at Wembley on Saturday as part of the International Champions Cup and cannot wait to come up against a club that means so much to him.

Suarez spent three-and-a-half years at Anfield before joining Barcelona in the summer of 2014 and admits that the Merseyside outfit hold a very special place in his heart.

"It's a really nice moment for the supporters. I have some friends there and I think it's a really good moment to come back to play against Liverpool," Suarez toldLiverpoolfc.com.

"I think for players when you play in front of 90,000 people, it's a dream. Liverpool's support is one of the best in the world and I think they are excited for the game to see great players on the pitch.

"Everybody knows Liverpool is so important in my life, in my career, and my family as well. My second child was born there and I had a really good moment there. I think it's a nice moment for me."
