MOST COMMENTED

Luis Suarez, who is currently in Brazil preparing for the Confederations Cup with Uruguay, has reiterated his desire to leave Liverpool this summer, insisting that the treatment he receives from the media has made it impossible for him to continue.

"Ever since I arrived I have felt bad, they have never judged me for my play but with the attitude that he dives, protests, makes gestures, racism ... everything," Suarez told television show RR Gol. "Without any proof they gave me an eight-match ban, but with Terry, where they had proof, lip-readers, they gave him four. I'm South American and I think that's the root of all of this," he said.

"Liverpool is a club that I dreamt about playing for as a boy. I have been with great players there, they know me and I would love to continue for many more years at Liverpool,” he continued. “The stadium is spectacular, the fans are phenomenal: people with tattoos of me, things that I could never have imagined.”

The 26-year-old added that he draws strength from the fans who have been pleading with him to stay and forget what has happened. "But I can't forget as it was something that I had to suffer, that my family had to suffer and away from football I have a family to support and who are hurt by these things."

While Suarez has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, Liverpool insists it won’t be selling its star player.
