Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has welcomed the news that Luis Suarez wants to remain at the club and warned the rest of the Premier League that the striker still had room for improvement.
Suarez scored Liverpool's opening goal in Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final victory over Stoke City to take his goal tally to 11 for the season.
And the Liverpool manager revealed his delight after Suarez said he had no intention of leaving Merseyside in the summer.
"It might be bad news for other Premier League teams but it is encouraging for us," Dalglish told the official Liverpool Web site.
"I don't think he has been anything other than a threat to the opposition. We aren't going to analyse every game he has played in, but he's always been a threat.
"We have been delighted with him since he has been here. And we are delighted with the wee man's comments. [He] has made a contribution every time he has stepped out on to the football pitch, whether it was on Sunday or a month ago. He scores goals and creates goals."
Earlier this week, Suarez refuted reports that he would seek a move abroad this summer, in the aftermath of his eight-game ban for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.
In recent weeks the Uruguayan international has been repeatedly linked with a move to French side Paris Saint-Germain, but Suarez insists he is happy at Anfield and is looking forward to his future at the club.
"I have spoken with the people at the club and they know that I want to stay and that I am enjoying myself and am very happy here," he told Liverpoolfc.tv.
"No one at the club has told me that they want to try to sell me or that I will be leaving. I'm going to carry on playing my football here at Liverpool. There are a good few years left on my contract and I want to carry on enjoying myself because both my family and I feel really happy here."
Meanwhile, Liverpool team-mate Dirk Kuyt has tipped Suarez to hit a purple patch of form after his exploits at the weekend, starting with Wednesday's trip to Queens Park Rangers.
"Luis had a great game against Stoke and scored a world-class goal," Kuyt told the Liverpool Echo. "He was never far off but when you don't score people will talk about you.
"For me even when he wasn't scoring he was creating great chances and was a little bit unfortunate not to get some goals. I think Luis is right up there now and hopefully the goals will start to flow for him.
"I'm sure he will create more chances against QPR and if he can keep scoring goals that will help us even more."
