Suarez: I left Liverpool because of the British media

Luis Suarez admits he left Liverpool because he was “tired” of the attention he was receiving from the English media.

The 28-year-old endured a turbulent time during his four-year stint in the Premier League having been banned for eight games after being found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra, while another 10 matches were missed through suspension due to biting Branislav Ivanovic.

Suarez, who also received a four-month global ban from Fifa for biting Giorgio Chiellini at last summer’s World Cup, admits he was unhappy with the media coverage surrounding him during his time at Liverpool and has hit out at allegations suggesting he bit Martin Demichelis during Barcelona’s Champions League clash with Manchester City in February.

“I don’t know if the English press have a campaign against me, but it looks like they miss me,” Suarez told beIN Sports. “They criticised me a lot, looking for things that weren’t there and calling attention to them.

“They published images of mein the morning and when they saw that it was false, the images suddenly disappeared.

“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.”

After initially struggling to find form at Barcelona, Suarez has scored eight goals in his last eight games and the Uruguay international maintains he was unconcerned by the start he made in Spain.

"I am very happy at Barca, it was a dream come true to play for the best team in the world. I am playing my part and that makes me relax and feel important," said the striker.

"There was a period when I created chances, but failed to score. That did not worry me, though. I am very critical of my own performances, especially when I saw I did not contribute with goals and assists. But I did help the team when I didn't score and I always felt important."
