Suarez relishing Wembley dream

25 February 2012 12:23

Liverpool forward Luis Suarez says that it is 'a dream come true' to represent the club he has long admired at Wembley.

The 25-year-old Uruguayan is hoping to make his fourth appearance in this season's Carling Cup competition when Liverpool face Championship outfit Cardiff City on Sunday.

"As for all players it is a dream come true to play at Wembley," Suarez told the official Cup final matchday programme.

"It is going to be a special occasion for both teams."

"People in Uruguay know all about Wembley with it being the national stadium in England. It is famous worldwide."

Suarez also spoke of his pride in following in the footsteps of Anfield legends Kevin Keegan and now-manager Kenny Dalglish in wearing the famous number seven shirt, although he admits that he did not realise the number's significance when he arrived.

"I wasn't aware when I arrived at Liverpool that Kevin Keegan and Kenny Dalglish also wore the number seven shirt but I don't see it as an added pressure, rather an inspiration and honour to wear the same number," he said.

"If I can replicate what they have done for the club then I will be very happy."

"It might sound a bit of a cliche but I always supported Liverpool when following English football."

"When I was younger and playing on the PlayStation against my friends I would always choose Liverpool."

"We used to watch a lot of English football when we were growing up in Uruguay as it is the best league in the world so to play for this club is a dream come true."

Suarez will be looking to add to his 10 goals in all competitions so far in 2011-12.
