Saurez Contract Shows Pool Intent

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has claimed that Luis Suarez’s new contract highlights the club’s commitment to secure a top four spot and Champions League football.

The Premier League’s top goal scorer so far this season signed a new long-term deal with the club on Friday after scoring 17 goals in his 11 appearances in the league.

The Anfield chairman believes that Suarez’s commitment indicates that Liverpool are heading in the right direction.

"We are delighted that Luis wanted to extend his contract," Werner told the Liverpool Echo.

"He's very happy to be at Liverpool and we are very happy that he will continue to represent the club for years to come.”

"We are working very hard to keep our best players here. This demonstrates our commitment to build a team that competes at the highest level both in the Premier League and in Europe,” he added.

"We prefer to do our work privately. We had been speaking with Luis and his agent for a while.”

"We are all glad it's been resolved. Luis is happy with the contract and we’re happy with it too.”

"We’re going into an important stretch for the club. The Christmas period is key and Luis signing the contract is a great boost for everyone.”

"Luis is a world-class talent. Whenever he’s on the pitch we have a chance to win."
