Suarez told to behave by wife

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has said that his wife has advised him to improve his behaviour on the pitch.

• Football is irrational

Suarez, 26, is currently serving a ten-game ban after he bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during Liverpool's 2-2 draw with the Blues at Anfield.

It is not the first time the Uruguayan has served a suspension for the Reds, after he was found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra in 2011.

And Suarez, speaking to Liverpool's official magazine, has said that his wife has urged him to alter his manner on the pitch so that it reflects his character off it.

"My wife has made observations like, 'You were arguing with the referee and the defenders too much; you didn't really seem up for it; you might as well have not been on the pitch'.

"I go away, think about it and realise she was right. She said people must go away and think that is what I am like off the pitch, even though I'm usually relaxed and easy-going.

"Having a wife that closely watches the game is good. She knows me better than anyone else and I want her observations to help me play better and be a happier person."

Suarez recently told the Sunday Times: "She's my biggest critic, she always comes to watch me," he said. "She asks what I'm doing, why am I arguing with the referee. 'All you've done today is turn up to shout at people, why don't you concentrate on playing football?'

"If I don't, they [Sofia and his daughter, Delfina] won't come and watch me anymore. These are things my wife has picked up on and so has everyone else, so it has made me think."
