Liverpool morning news, club legend hopes for final twist, Suarez hints at old club return

A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Thursday morning.

Liverpool’s record goalscorer Ian Rush senses there could be another twist in the title race as it goes down to the final day.

If the Reds are to end their 24 year wait to become champions, they will have to beat Newcastle United at Anfield whilst hoping for West Ham United to beat Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Rush cites 1989 when Liverpool lost the title to Arsenal on goals scored at Anfield, when the Reds needed to avoid defeat by less than two goals, but lost 2-0.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “The most important thing for Liverpool is to beat Newcastle United.

“If City win the game win the game then it just wasn’t to be. But if they don’t and Liverpool fail to beat Newcastle then it would be terrible.

“The only thing Liverpool have to concentrate on this weekend is getting three points and finishing on 84 points for the season.

“I have a sneaky feeling that the league will be won on 84 points. There will be another twist and turn. I fully feel that will happen but Liverpool have got to be in the position to capitalise on any slip-up.”

Striker Luis Suarez has said that he would like to play for Ajax again after his time at Liverpool. The Reds signed the Uruguayan from the Dutch giants in January 2011.

The Daily Mail have picked up on an interview with Helden magazine, where Suarez says: “I’ve always said on one day I will return to Ajax. Even if the manager doesn’t want me, I’ll go. For sure!

“Ajax was a very important step in my life. My wife Sofia and I are crazy about Amsterdam and the lifestyle, the respect from and for everyone.”
