'We all know how important Guardiola is' - Suarez shrugs off Bayern rumours

The former Barcelona manager is reportedly interested in bringing the Liverpool attacker to the Allianz Arena, when he takes charge at the beginning of next season
Liverpool star Luis Suarez has dismissed rumours that he could move to Bayern Munich next season, when Pep Guardiola takes over in Bavaria.

The Uruguay international has scored 22 goals in 32 appearances so far this season, prompting reported interest from the former Barcelona boss.

But while hailing Guardiola's talent and influence, Suarez stressed that he is happy to remain at Anfield.

He told Sport 890: "We all know how important Guardiola is and the many things he won at Barcelona. He must know a thing or two about football!

"But if I'm being honest, I don't ever stop to read what it's being said about me in the press. It would drive me mad as I'm linked to so many clubs.

"The day a concrete offers comes for me to the club, we will sit down and do what's best for everyone. But I'm happy here. The Premier League is the best league there is.

"I watch a lot of football on my spare time. I watch Italian, Spanish and German football, but the most attractive for me is the English football. I want to stay here. I'm very happy here."

Suarez has been criticised in the past for alleged diving, but has grabbed the headlines for his stunning form throughout this campaign, and admitted he is delighted with the way the Reds are developing this season.

He added: "Referees here in England are trying to understand what I say and understand the way I play football and that's a good thing.

"We are bringing in young and talented players and the manager likes us to play attractive football with the ball on the ground, always."
