Liverpool’s Luis Suarez will remain at Anfield next season according to former Barcelona defender Frank de Boer, who also says the Uruguayan is “a good person”.  

Suarez was criticised by both manager Kenny Dalglish and Anfield officials this week when he appeared to snub the hand of Patrice Evra before Liverpool took on Manchester United on Saturday, something which has led to huge speculation that the player will quit England and look for a move elsewhere.

However former Barcelona player Frank de Boer, who played 143 times during a five-year spell at the Catalan giants, believes Suarez will stay on Merseyside and also told Goal.com’s Spanish site he has been surprised by the player’s recent controversies.

“I was rather surprised because I know Luis and he is a good person, but he has apologised and he should stay at Liverpool.”

De Boer, now coach of Ajax Amsterdam, did criticise Suarez for his behaviour during the pre-match handshakes however, saying: “It was wrong to do that and Liverpool should have spoken to him about this before the game.  These things are bad and harmful for him and the club itself.”

Suarez has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona’s bitter rivals Real Madrid in recent weeks, and many people still believe the former Ajax striker could be heading for la liga in the summer.

Meanwhile Liverpool’s American owners have made it clear they will not tolerate any controversy at the club leaving Suarez to face an uncertain future at Anfield, however it is also clear the 25-year-old is a key player for Kenny Dalglish and the manager will be loath to let him go.
