Suarez wants European place

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.” He

added on Liverpool’s official website: “It does not matter that I

keep getting these man of the match awards. “All that matters is

that we keep on winning games and going up the table. “There are

still three games left and we have to prepare ourselves really well

to make sure we get all the points we can. “Tottenham at home (on

May 15) is going to be a great game. That will be the most

important game of our season if we want to dream about going to the

Europa League.”
