Suarez wants European place

Luis Suarez would have no complaints if Liverpool’s ongoing revival resulted in qualification for the Europa League.

Kenny Dalglish has produced a remarkable turnaround in form since returning to the Anfield hot-seat in January and the club have lost just two of their last 14 Premier League matches.

Thirty points have been collected in that space of time to move Liverpool above Tottenham, who still have to visit Merseyside, in fifth place in the table, which would book a place in Europe next season.

But it has been suggested that the comparative lack of glamour and resulting fixture congestion of the Europa League is something that Liverpool and Tottenham would want to avoid.

However, former Ajax striker Suarez, who was ineligible for Liverpool in Europe when he joined in January, thinks otherwise.

The 24-year-old Uruguayan said: "If we get in the Europa League, of course, our objective has to be to win it. That is what a club like this must aim for.

"We have to do everything we can to win as many competitions as we can. Qualifying for Europe has to be our objective.

"When I came I wanted to help Liverpool get there. But when the second half of the season started it looked really difficult.

"But we have kept winning games, we have played really well and got some important victories. We have been hoping that Tottenham drop points."
