Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has pledged his unwavering allegiance to former club Liverpool after declaring that the Merseyside outfit are the only Premier League team he'd ever play for.
The Uruguay international was asked whether he'd consider a return to England's top-flight at some point in the future after turning out at Anfield for Steven Gerrard's side in Sunday's All-Star game.
Suarez was pragmatic with his response by refusing to rule anything out, but the likelihood of him quitting Camp Nou anytime soon seems a little farfetched, particularly now that he's starting to rediscover his best form as part of Luis Enrique's attacking triumvirate that includes two other world-leading stars in Neymar and, of course, Lionel Messi.

"You never know in football what the future holds but if I ever play in England again, I will play for the Liverpool team and not another team," the Barca ace told Liverpool TV as quoted by the Daily Mail.
"I've missed the fans, [and] the atmosphere is unbelievable, it's amazing. Everyone who's played for Liverpool knows how important the supporters are. They know they are in my heart."

Suarez's three-and-a-half year spell with Liverpool was certainly eventful. The enigmatic talisman could write a very interesting book detailing the various incidents he was involved in during his time with Brendan Rodgers's squad.
As well as being banned for racially abusing Patrice Evra the South American was suspended for biting Branislav Ivanovic, but despite his long list of misdemeanours the 28-year-old's goalscoring exploits helped establish him as a firm fans favourite on Merseyside.
The majority of Liverpool fans were disappointed to see Suarez depart under a cloud after another FIFA biting ban following the World Cup in Brazil last summer, but could hardly begrudge him the opportunity to link up with the Catalan giants.
Barcelona have had to wait patiently before seeing the best of the £75 million signing, but after netting a brace in the Champions League last 16 first leg clash against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium - his first game back in England since leaving - the maverick marksman hasn't looked back since, netting seven goals in his past seven games in all competitions including the winner in El Clasico against Real Madrid just over a week ago.
Unfortunately he was unable to maintain his fine goalscoring form as Gerrard's All-Stars drew 2-2 with Jamie Carragher's self-selected squad of Liverpool players past and present plus cameos from some of the game's biggest names from yesteryear.
