Luis Suarez was certainly no saint during his time at Anfield but he will always be remembered in the Liverpool's history alongside the ever growing list of incredible strikers to grace Merseyside.
Winning the Premier League's Golden Boot and coming so close to pipping Manchester City to the title during that unforgettable 2013/14 season mean the club will always hold a special place in the Uruguayan's heart.
And, ahead of Barcelona's clash with Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday, Suarez has been speaking very highly of his former club.
The Reds have struggled to manifest any sort of title challenge since the 29-year-old departed in 2014 but the former Anfield hero is confident Jurgen Klopp's side can have a successful campaign.
The German manager couldn't quite guide Liverpool back into the Champions League last time out, nevertheless, Suarez doesn't think they will be absent from Europe's top competition for very long.
He told Liverpool's official website: “The last few months, everybody saw a really good performance from Liverpool.
“They had a chance to win the Europa League and in the Premier League they played really well. Now it’s a new season, I think the manager (will) have confidence they can finish in the top four.”
Suarez thrilled the Anfield faithful with 82 goals from 133 appearances during his three-and-a-half year stint in England and he admitted feeling relieved that his first game against his old club is just a friendly.
He added: “It’s important for this game that it’s a friendly game because if it was in the Champions League or a really good tournament, it’d be difficult to play against Liverpool. But a friendly game is to enjoy.”
The Uruguayan looks in typically good form ahead of the new season after scoring a determined solo strike and assisting another in Barcelona's entertaining 4-2 victory over Leicester last night.
Liverpool supporters will be hoping Suarez isn't quite as deadly against his old teammates if Klopp's men are to pull off a positive result on Saturday.
