Luis Suarez has dropped his biggest hint yet that he is considering his options this summer as whether to stay at Liverpool and in the Premier League.
In his pre-match press conference ahead of Uruguay’s international friendly against France, Suarez spoke of his passion for Liverpool FC, but discontent at being in a country where he “[hasn’t] been judged as a player, but based on other things.”
“It’s a good moment for a change of environment because of all I’ve been through in England, where I haven’t been judged as a player but based on other things,” the Mirror translate Suarez’s answers at the press conference as saying.
“I have only words of thanks to the club, the fans of Liverpool, but the treatment I received from the rest of England in recent weeks has been tough.
“Liverpool are a spectacular club, but they are aware of the way that the press treats me.”
Suarez also said that he has been in communications with Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers and everyone in aware of what exactly he wants.
Should Suarez stay at Anfield, the forward would miss the first six games of the new season, following his 10-match ban for biting Chelsea‘s Branislav Ivanovic last month.
“I do not know when I’m going and I do not know if I’m staying,” he added.
“Obviously the club want me to stay, but I’ve talked to the coach and he knows what I want.
“He was a player, and my team-mates understand that my situation is difficult.”
Earlier this week, Suarez told Uruguayan radio that he would find it hard to say no to a club like Real.
It seems we have a Luis Suarez transfer saga on our hands and for everyone’s sake at Liverpool Football Club, we have to hope it doesn’t rumble on throughout the summer.
Suarez has voiced his discontent at the league and country he plays in at least twice this week, and an unhappy player doesn’t make for a great outlook to the future of the team. The fact that he seems to be slipping in the odd compliment towards Liverpool will not help to heal the disappointment of fans if he is to leave.
The ball’s in your court Luis, but please make a decision.
