Suarez plays down Messi comparisons

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has played down any comparisons with Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, The Daily Mail reports.

Suarez has been in scintillating form so far this season and has been tipped as the best player in the Premier League by teammate Andy Carroll among others. Some have compared him with Messi, who is seen as the best player in the world. The Uruguayan forward has played down any comparison after a Facebook group was set up entitled ‘Luis Suarez is the new Messi’. Suarez is focused on playing his football and does not want to take all the credit for some good team performances at club and country.

Suarez said: ‘Comparisons with Messi embarrass me. It also makes me smile, but I feel the comparisons are just the reaction from the Uruguay fans as everything seems to be going well at the moment.’
