Dirk Kuyt believes his Liverpool team-mate Luis Suarez is gradually getting back to his best and never thought the Uruguayan would leave Anfield.


Suarez had been linked with a move away from Kenny Dalglish’s side after reportedly being unhappy with the negative press surrounding him after being found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra.


He received an eight-game ban for that offence and had been looking a little rusty since returning, but some encouraging recent displays have Kuyt believing the former Ajax captain is returning to something like his best form.


“Luis had a great game against Stoke and scored a world class goal. He was never far off but when you don’t score people will talk about you,” the Dutchman told the Liverpool Echo.


“For me even when he wasn’t scoring he was creating great chances and was a little bit unfortunate not to get some goals.


“I think Luis is right up there now and hopefully the goals will start to flow for him.


“I’m sure he will create more chances against QPR and if he can keep scoring goals that will help us even more.”


Suarez was influential in the 3-0 derby destruction of Everton, setting up two of Steven Gerrard’s three goals, and scored a classy goal in the FA Cup victory over Stoke City on Sunday.


That was his first goal for a month and many had taken his indifferent from, added to a poor scoring record, as a sign that rumours of his discontent may have some credence.


Kuyt has dismissed this and was insistent that the Uruguay international had never contemplated leaving the Reds.


“I speak a lot with Luis and he has always been happy with the club, with the supporters and with his team-mates,” added the 31-year-old.


“I never had the feeling that he wasn’t anything but happy at Liverpool. He’s said he’s more than happy to stay and hopefully he will stay here for a long time.”
