Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre says the club are certain striker Luis Suarez will remain at Anfield.
The 26-year-old is reported to have said he would consider leaving the club if a team playing in the Champions League were interested in his services.
“There will always be instances, particularly leading up to the summer, where people are quoted or asked these questions”
But Ayre, asked whether he was 100% confident of keeping hold of the player, replied: “Yes, absolutely.” Ayre told BBC comments attributed to the Uruguayan “may have been a bit lost in translation”.
He later told BBC Breakfast: “We love Luis being at Liverpool, he loves being at Liverpool and we fully expect him to be at Liverpool next season.”
Suarez signed for Liverpool from Ajax for £22,7m in January 2011 and has scored 29 goals for the club this campaign.
