Suarez: My words were twisted

Luis Suarez has claimed that his words were “twisted” following reports surfacing on Wednesday suggesting that he was considering a Liverpool exit.

Suarez, 26, has often said in the past that he is happy at the Premier League club, despite the lack of Champions League football on offer at Anfield.

The Uruguay international, though, was quoted in Thursday’s Liverpool Echo, from an original interview given in Uruguay, as saying: "If another team comes around with more prospects of competing in international club competition games, which is willing to have me, they are welcome.”

However, the Reds striker has since moved to set the record straight, stating that the quotes had been manipulated from the interview given in his homeland.

“I’m sad to read these things,” Suarez was quoted as telling Uruguayan radio by the Times. “When it’s in England, I accept it but I do not expect my words to be twisted over here [Uruguay].”

Suarez’s comments follow those of Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre, who said on Wednesday that he believed the reports to have been mistranslated.

"You can read into the comments - it was given in his native language so I think maybe it was a bit lost in translation,'' he told BBC Radio Five Live.

Suarez, the leading goalscorer in the Premier League this season with 22 goals, signed a new four-year deal with Liverpool last August.
