Suarez: I’ve still got to prove myself

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez says despite being happy with his start to his career at Anfield, he still has a lot of work to do to earn a hero status at the club.

Suarez has already made a major impact on the team and the fans since his £23million move from Ajax at the end of January.

The Uruguayan international is already having his name sung from the Kop, but he insists there is much more of his game to prove.

“I’ve only been here a month-and-a-half and it’s good to see the fans are happy. I came here to work hard for the team and to do my absolute best. If they are singing my name maybe it shows I’m doing my job well,” he told LFC Magazine.

“But there are a lot of games and there is a lot of time to go before I am a real hero. It’s too early for that.”

In the same interview, Suarez also spoke of his childhood in Uruguay and learning football with his brothers.

“I’m not joking when I tell you I am the worst of all of us,” he added.

“The best among us brothers works in a bakery business for a living. He plays regularly for fun. He’s more skilful and gifted than the rest of us!”
