After all the controversies surrounding him of late, you’d think Luis Suarez would keep a low profile and refrain from discussing any potential transfer. Instead he’s gone and reiterated his desire to play alongside Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Uruguayan is quoted in The Mirror, speaking on national television in Uruguay, expressing his desire to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo:
“Of course I would like to play with Cristiano Ronaldo – he is a great player. You never know, but it is complicated.”
“At the moment he is in Madrid and I am in Liverpool and I do not know what is going to happen.”
Seemingly, Suarez is happy to sour his relationship with Liverpool supporters by speaking so openly about his desire to join Real.
Edit: In response to those who have responded on twitter to say Suarez was simply ‘answering a question’ – ask yourself why the need to say “at the moment” and “it is complicated”. He is openly saying he wants to leave.
Speaking of the incident which led to him receiving a 10 match ban, when he bit Branislav Ivanovic, Suarez admitted his mistake:
“The incident with Ivanovic – I know I made a mistake, it was me, my fault, and he did not do anything to me.“I was angry because I had given away a penalty for hand ball. I was the cause of the penalty against my team – I saw red and completely lost it. I can’t really explain it and I am so sorry.”
Of the reaction to the incident, Suarez said:
“But still people can be very cruel, and the reaction was amazing.”
Again, attempting to shift the blame, similar to his previous quotes where the media were cited as his reason for seeking a “change of environment“.
Perhaps the most incredible thing during this saga is that nobody is advising Suarez on what to say, or not say more to the point.
