However, Suarez's talents attracted the world's elite club's and last summer he signed for Barcelona for £75 million.

Suarez returned to Anfield for the first time since his summer exit to play in an All-Star charity match between a Steven Gerrard XI and a Jamie Carragher XI, which ended 2-2.

It seems that Suarez will remain at the Catalan club for the near future but he has not ruled out a move back to the Premier League and stresses it would only be Liverpool if he was to return.

"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," he told the Liverpool Echo

“It’s great to come back to Anfield. Not just for the old players coming back but those who play now and for the supporters, for Stevie and the foundation - it was a special game.

“I’ve missed the fans. 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 has indeed become a true LFC legend and is adored by Kopites from all corners of the globe.

His time at Anfield was full of ups and downs, however, Reds fans will always remember him for his unbelievable talent on a football field.

Last season, he was by far the best player in the Premier League and was the top scorer by ten goals ahead of team-mate Daniel Sturridge, despite missing the first six games of the campaign.

The Salto-native menaced defenders throughout the season, nutmegging them in impossible circumstances and was a goalkeepers nightmare.

His 45 yard scream against Fulham and brace away at Manchester United are just three of the many goals that has made him one the greatest players to ever compete in the Premier League.

Torres Partnership

When the deal was being made to sign Suarez from Ajax, then-manager Kenny Dalglish's plan was to partner him alongside Fernando Torres.

The pair were two of the best forwards in the world and their combination could have seen Liverpool have the best strike partnership in the top flight.

However, things did not pan out and Torres left for Chelsea just days later.

The departure of 'El Nino' left Kopites with the question 'what if?" for years and nobody ever expected them to play up top together.

However Sunday's charity match seen the two link up in the second half of the game.

Reds fans finally got to see how the two would have faired together and Suarez relished every moment of it.

"It was great for me to play up front alongside Fernando. Four years ago when I signed for Liverpool, I crossed my fingers to play with Fernando and he left three days after I signed.

“It was a great day for the other players but for me and Fernando it was a great chance to play together."
