Liverpool has responded to Luis Suarez’s statements that he wants to leave England on account of the harsh treatment he has received from the media, by saying that the Uruguayan is not for sale. “Luis Suarez is not for sale -- neither Luis or his representatives have communicated these feelings directly to LFC,” the statement said. "The club remains supportive of Luis and expect him to honor his contract. We will not be making any further comment at this stage."
Suarez, who is currently serving a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, told a press conference in Uruguay that he and his family no longer feel comfortable in England. "I think it's understandable that I leave,” the 26-year-old said. "My reason for leaving is not the money. If it were the money I would have left already. My main reason is my family and my image. The coach and my colleagues know that the press didn't treat me well.”
He added: I don't feel comfortable any more. I couldn't go to my garden or the supermarket. I couldn't do anything. I know it is normal being followed by the press, but it was too much.” Reports claim that Real Madrid is the Uruguayan’s most likely destination. “I don't know when I will leave or even if I will finally leave or I will stay,” he said. “The club knows what I think and what I want. I don't know what will happen but I have a contract. If I stay, I will do my best."
