Barcelona's Luis Suarez Makes Promise To Liverpool Fans Ahead Of Anfield Return
Luis Suarez seriously p*ssed off a lot of Liverpool fans for not only celebrating his goal but also shithousing his way to victory, though the Barcelona striker has made a promise ahead of his Anfield return.
The Uruguayan, who enjoyed a prolific spell at Liverpool between 2010 to 2014, scored against them in the Champions League semi-final first leg and he celebrated his strike in trademark fashion.
But if he finds the net at Anfield, he's promised he won't celebrate.
:speaking_head:️ "I'll always be grateful to Liverpool."

"People who know about football know the importance of the goal I scored in the Champions League semi-final," Suarez said in his pre-match press conference.
"I have all the respect in the world for the Liverpool fans. Because I scored it and celebrated it with my fans, I say sorry.
"I am very thankful to Liverpool, to the fans and to the club, and obviously it's clear that if I score a goal against Liverpool [at Anfield] I won't celebrate it. The same way I didn't do in Holland when I scored [for Ajax against Groningen]."
He added: "People know the work that I did here. I am thankful to the club. I think there will be more applause than whistles and I think if people want to whistle and it makes them happy... there will perhaps be quite a few that aren't happy.
"But I think people will be more thankful and grateful. There were people in the kitchen waiting to give me a present for my children."
Tonight's fixture will mark Suarez's first competitive game at Liverpool since swapping clubs in 2014.
Meanwhile, the Reds have a mountain to climb in their second leg clash with Barcelona. They trail by three-goals following defeat at Camp Nou last week.
