Liverpool FC’s Luis Suarez will take the Premier League by storm declares Lucas
LUCAS believes Luis Suarez’s international success will benefit Liverpool FC as he backed the striker to take the Premier League by storm this season.
Suarez returned to Melwood on a high this week after leading Uruguay to glory in the Copa America.
The £22.8million frontman has been back training after a fortnight off and boss Kenny Dalglish is considering whether to involve him in Saturday’s opening league game against Sunderland.
Midfielder Lucas is confident Suarez, who was crowned player of the tournament, will take his scintillating form for Uruguay into the new campaign.
“We were in contact for the whole of the Copa America because we’re really close here in Liverpool and I was really happy he got the award,” Lucas said.
“Uruguay deserved to win the tournament and for him to score in the semi-final and final, he deserved to be picked as the best player.
“We’re really happy because he’s a Liverpool player and he’s come back with a lot of confidence for the new season.
“Luis is really excited as everyone is at the moment. We have new players and we have a lot of confidence to start well. We’ll make sure we start better than last season.”
