While Luis Suarez may have left Liverpool a number of years ago, it is clear that he still has a true love for the club.
The Uruguayan striker brought a smile to every Reds fan with his true footballing ability which was simply something to behold.
Suarez scored 82 goals in 133 games for the club, many of which were pieces of splendid individual skill, however it was his resilient nature was was just as noteworthy.
The striker got a fair old kicking on a weekly basis, however it was his tendency to shrug it off and continue to terrorise the opponents by scoring and setting up goals which was to his true credit.
While he was beloved by Liverpool fans, he was certainly loathed by the greater football public for what can only be described as some unusual antics.
However individuals with a touch of genius also have some eccentricity to their nature and there is no doubt Suarez falls into that category.
A true sign of the overall impact of a player is how the team performs after they leave the club.
After a sad (albeit an inevitable) departure, it was around 18 months before the gloom began to lift and the methods of Jurgen Klopp were starting to falling into place and a new era was born.
Now 32, Suarez is still performing at a exceptionally high standard at Barcelona with 15 goals in La Liga this season.
Suarez has kept a eye on the progress of his old club, and is thrilled by their current position.
The Liverpool Echo (via German magazine 11FREUNDE) reported Suarez as saying:
"Anyone who has ever played in Liverpool remains connected to the club for a lifetime.
"The team plays terrific football and I am very interested in how they will do this year. I think we can still be prepared for a lot.”
While not forecasting a return to the club anytime soon, Suarez said the idea of working with Klopp was something that all players would love to do.
"Currently we work for two different clubs so that's not an issue for me at the moment.
"But sure, every player would like to train under Jurgen Klopp"
It is likely a improbable dream, and there is a old adage that 'you never go back as it isn't nearly as good second time around.'
But if all the stars aligned and looked like a fair deal, you would seriously have to think about it, even it was a few years down the line in a bit-part role.
For now, we can reminisce about the special times and be content that the 'mad little genius' still has Liverpool well and truly in his heart.
