Liverpool hero Luis Suarez hints at sensational future return to Anfield

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez admitted that he could return to Liverpool one day.

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has told Liverpool's official website that he could well return to Anfield at some point in his career.

Suarez, 28, spent three-and-a-half years at Anfield, becoming a hero in the red half of Merseyside for his sensational goalscoring record.

The Uruguayan, signed from Ajax in 2011, smashed 82 goals in 133 games for Liverpool, capturing the hearts of the Anfield crowd despite a number of controversial incidents.

Eventually, Suarez did leave Liverpool last summer, joining La Liga giants Barcelona, who he has now scored 14 goals in 29 games for.

Suarez returned to Anfield on Sunday afternoon to play in the All-Star charity match, featuring on the pitch alongside the likes of Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Fernando Torres.

After the game, Suarez spoke to the Liverpool official website, and admitted that he could return to the club in the future - as they are the only English team that he could play for.

"You never know [what will happen] in football, but if in the future I play in England again, I play with the Liverpool shirt on and not another shirt," he said.

It's somewhat ironic that Suarez should say that given how he pushed for a move to Arsenal in 2013, but he remains a hero at Anfield - and it would be surprise to see him come back to play for Liverpool in the near future.
