Leiva hopeful over Suarez stay

30 April 2013 11:01

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva believes the support Luis Suarez has received from players and fans could keep him at the club.

Suarez was banned for 10 games following his bite on Branislav Ivanovic in the 2-2 draw with Chelsea earlier in the month.

The Uruguayan has been the subject of much criticism as a result of his actions, but remains a well-liked figure in the Anfield dressing room.

Liverpool's fans have also been keen to show their backing for the former Ajax man, and Leiva is confident that Suarez could display his gratitude by sticking with Brendan Rodgers' side.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "As players, we are all right behind him. He's an important player for this club and he’s also a person who we have to help.

"I haven't discussed his future with him. We don't talk about it as that's his private business. I can't tell what he has in mind but he has a contract and I think every player here is looking forward to next season

"The fact the fans sung his name so much at St Jame'’ Park just showed the love they have for Luis. For sure, he loves this club as well.

"We all hope Luis will still be a Liverpool player next season."
