Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez thinks the club "belongs" in the Champions League. The 29-year-old star left the club in 2014 to join Barcelona and he thinks the Reds should be competing with Europe's elite teams.

Suarez revealed he takes a keen interest in Liverpool's fortunes. He added that he hopes to see them make a return to the Champions League under German manager Jurgen Klopp.

"I will always watch Liverpool and look for their results. They will always be a very special club for me," he said, according to the Daily Express. "I would love to see them back in the Champions League. They have a new coach who is one of the most experienced in Europe so I am sure they can be back there soon. It is where that special club belongs."

Suarez almost joined for Arsenal in the summer of 2013. But the former Liverpool and Ajax star admitted he has no regrets about the transfer failing to materialise, having subsequently moved to Barcelona, where he has won La Liga and the Champions League.

"They are a big club but it would have been very difficult to play for any team other than Liverpool in England," he said of his respect for Liverpool. "Barcelona was the right choice for me. Yes, I have won the treble in my first season but also my family are very happy in the city. Barcelona was the only choice for me, life is good."
