Luis Suarez has again hit out at his portrayal in the media and the reaction of the public, and confirmed he wants to leave Liverpool and the Premier League because of it, the
Suarez, currently banned for 10 games for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, relayed a story in which he posed for a picture with a group of people only to see they were making biting gestures, adding he is getting tired of such events and the damning the effect it has on his family.
He added: “[The public] said I dived, moaned, postured, they said I was racist, they said everything,” claiming that is why he was not named PFA Player of the Year, Gareth Bale winning the award instead.
“They have never spoken well of me. That’s why, when people said that I could have been chosen as the best player in the Premier League, I said: ‘I’m relaxed, I know that in England I’m never going to be given an important prize.”
Suarez continued: “The press have made me feel bad since the moment I arrived in England, they have never judged me on how I play football, they judged me on my attitude.”
The former Ajax forward did thank Liverpool and Liverpool supporters for standing by him during his eight-game ban for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra, but pointed to what he feels is an inconsistency in the punishment handed down to Chelsea’s John Terry for his own race row involving Anton Ferdinand.
“They gave me an eight-match ban without any proof, but in the case of Terry, where they had proof and lip-readers, they gave him four,” Suarez said. “I’m South American and I think that’s the root of all of this.”
