Luis Suarez has revealed he won't return to the Premier League, unless it was to former club, Liverpool.

Suarez left the Reds in 2014 for Barcelona, where he won four LaLiga titles and one Champions League trophy, and struck up a brilliant partnership with Lionel Messi and Neymar before the latter left for Paris Saint-Germain.

The Uruguayan made the switch to Atletico Madrid last summer, and went on to win the league with Diego Simeone's side. Even at 34, Suarez is showing no signs of slowing down, but warded off interest from potential suitors in the Premier League.

"Playing for any team other than Liverpool in England would be hard," he told World Soccer Magazine. "I had, and hope I still do have, such a good relationship with Liverpool fans that it would be strange for me to play for somebody else.

Liverpool finally lifted the Premier League title in the 2019-20 season, ending a 30-year draught, and Suarez admitted he wished he were at the club for the momentous ocassion. He added: "It would have been special to win the league with Liverpool, but I am glad that their wait is now over. They look like a team that will compete for many seasons to come even if this one has not been the best for them. They are back where they belong."

Suarez has one year left on his deal with Atletico, but refused to rule out an extension with the LaLiga champions.

"At the moment I am enjoying my time here," he said.

"I enjoy it here, we are settled in Spain - there is no need to think about me leaving. When I think how well I have settled in at Atletico and the faith the coach has shown in me, it was easily the right decision for me."
