Liverpool - 7 things Luis Suarez said

The words of Luis Suarez. Lost in translation ?

'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'.

Interview with the club, March 2012

'I get goosebumps only thinking about it. Only 4 years ago I use to pretend that I was a Liverpool player, on Playstation'.

Interview at the Confederations Cup, June 2013

'I love Liverpool, but if there is a chance of playing somewhere else…I suffered too much as a kid to get where I am to be attacked unfairly by the English press. They haven’t appreciated me as a player, they’ve just judged my attitude'.

Interview with Uruguayan radio station Sport890, May 2013

'My reason for leaving is not money. It is my family and my image. I don’t feel comfortable here anymore'.

Uruguay press conference, May 2013

'A player always aspires to the top, and Madrid are always one of the highest ambitions for any footballer'.

Interview with the Spanish press, June 2013

'It is not just one club at the moment, there are options. I do not think any of them are concrete yet. There are two or three teams that are possibilities. I have to go back to Liverpool on the 21st and then travel for a game in Australia. But in football you never know what is going to happen. A phone call can change all of those plans'.

Interview with a Uruguayan radio station, July 2013

And could he could yet join another English club - given his problems with the British media ? Suarez says that the interest from other English clubs (Arsenal and Chelsea) demonstrates that 'clubs are still assessing players on their ability which means I could go back (to the UK) and do things well over there'.
