No surprises who forced Suarez away from the club.
Luis Suarez has said the treatment he received at the hands of the British media was the main reason he decided to quit Liverpool last summer.
On the pitch Suarez was undoubtedly one of the Premier League’s – probably the world’s – best players.
But throughout his time at our club, whilst he did his best to court controversy, he was also the butt of many a press allegation and witch-hunt.
He was widely derided in the media for the Patrice Evra affair, and his biting incident with Branislav Ivanovic for many seemed the final straw.
“They talk too much and they didn’t leave me in peace and I left because I was tired of them, but they continue looking for something,” said Suarez to beIN Sports, via Metro.
Despite Suarez leaving English football in the summer, he is still making headlines in the press, particularly after his performance for Barcelona in the Champions League against Manchester City.
A particular video clip saw Suarez again in the media’s crosshairs after they alleged it showed him attempting to bite Martin Demichelis – however, a different angle of the incident was later released and showed this to be false.
“I don’t know if the English press have a campaign against me, but it looks like they miss me.
“They criticised me a lot, looking for things that weren’t there and calling attention to them.
“They published images of me [allegedly biting Demichelis] in the morning and when they saw that it was false, the images suddenly disappeared.”
