Luis Suarez believes adversities they faced this season will make Liverpool stronger

Luis Suarez believes Liverpool can emerge stronger after being through a tumultuous season.

The Reds, who were on a run of six defeats from seven matches - the club's worst record in almost 60 years, managed to break their bad patch with a late win at Blackburn last weekend and then followed it up by winning the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley against derby rivals Everton.

"You are bound to enjoy picking up trophies and medals, of course you are. But you learn most about one another during a bad patch - you learn how to stick together even more. No team has success after success. All clubs, teams and players go through good runs and bad runs. That is football," quoted Suarez as saying.

The club have had yet another disappointing league campaign and have slipped to eighth place in the table but did win the Carling Cup in March and will play Chelsea in the FA Cup final next month and Suarez hopes they can finish the season on a high.

"Even the very best of all time have bad periods, but it is how they react that defines them. If you react in the right way and support each other, adversity can be a good thing in the long run because you become stronger," the 25 year old said.

"We recognise our league form has not been at the level that it should be. But it is always important to analyse the season as a whole, when the final ball has been kicked, rather than when there are games to play," he added.

Suarez also praised manager Kenny Dalglish, who admitted he could be the next man out of Anfield after the recent departure of club director Damien Comolli.

Dalglish had earlier come under criticism for supporting Suarez after the player made racist comments against Manchester United defender Patrice Evra. However, the Uruguayan appreciates the backing of his boss and said he loves working with the former Reds striker.

"Apart from the fact that he was the person that signed me, I appreciate the fact that I've always felt that I've had 100 per cent backing from Kenny Dalglish. This is very important for any footballer. He understands me as a player and as a person. He knows what I can do and that I will always give everything for the team on the field," Suarez said.

"Importantly, because he was a striker himself, if there are things I need to put right, he tries to help me by giving advice. I always take it in the right manner because I respect the fact that he played in the same position as me and is one of the greatest, if not the greatest player, in the club's history," the striker added.

Suarez has 14 goals and seven assists from 34 appearances this season. He will be looking to continue his recent goal scoring form when Liverpool host West Brom on Sunday - a match that will see former Reds manager Roy Hodgson returning to Anfield for the first time after he was sacked last season.
