Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has put pen to paper on a new long-term contract at Melwood.
The Uruguayan arrived Anfield from Ajax in 2011 and since then he has been in controversial news, serving two most controversial bans:
1) Racially abusing Patrice Evra during a game against Manchester United in 2011. He served eight-game suspension.
2) Biting Branislav Ivanovic during a game against Chelsea in 21-April-2013. He served ten-game suspension ban.
During the last summer Suarez was highly-linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid, but the manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that the 26-year-old is not going anywhere.
The striker has been in stunning form this season, scored 17 goals in 11 premier league games so far. He insisted, Liverpool fans were his main reason for extending his contract at Anfield.
“I am delighted to have agreed a new deal with Liverpool and have my future secured for the long term,” Suarez told the club’s website, www.liverpoolfc.com.
The new deal will be a huge boost for the Reds and it will be great to watch him in action for the coming season, helping the club to claim the title both in Barclays premier league and in Europe. However, Liverpool did not disclose the length of Suarez’s new deal.
