Liverpool’s star striker Luis Suarez has paved the way for a Summer exit from Anfield.
Speaking to the Uruguayan press ahead of the Confederates Cup Suarez said: “I’m happy at Liverpool, I’m happy because of the fans. I made a mistake, I’m human, but they’ve talked about me in ways they shouldn’t have.
My family have suffered and things got out of hand. My daughter and my wife have suffered. I’m not prepared to continue to put up with the English press.
“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.”
Asked about Madrid, he said: “I’ve talked to my agent, there’s nothing concrete. To say no to Madrid would always be difficult and more so with the team they have.
“I have a contract with Liverpool, but it would be very difficult to say no to Real Madrid. There are a lot of rumours in the transfer period, but you never know until firm offers are made.”
He added: “I’ve talked to the coach (Rodgers), and he knows what I want. He was a player. Some of the players understand my situation – enough said.”
He will be a huge lose to Brendan Rodger’s Liverpool team, but because of the lengthy bans he has received during his time in England, it comes as no real surprise that the talented South-American wants to get away from all the media attention.
We will be sorry to see you go Luis, lets hope we get a good price for you in the transfer market for someone to fill your boots.
