Suarez repeats 'victimised' claims

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has again claimed that victimisation by the British media and the FA are driving him out of Anfield.

David Cameron had said a long ban for Suarez would be 'understandable'
Suarez believes he is being unfairly treated

The Uruguay international, 26, said his wife had been left on the verge of tears during a shopping trip when fans mocked him over his bite on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

Suarez, serving a ten-match domestic suspension for the biting incident, which he said happened after he had "lost it", added that he believed the FA had singled him out because he is South American.

He argued that the eight-match ban he was given for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra during a Premier League match in October 2011 was disproportionate.

And he said the case was comparable to that of Chelsea’s former England captain John Terry, who was banned for four games after being found guilty of racial abuse towards QPR defender Anton Ferdinand, also in October 2011.

Suarez, who is with the Uruguay squad preparing for the Confederations Cup in Brazil, insisted he still loved Liverpool, where he is under contract until 2016, but said he had to leave. The Reds say he is not for sale.

“Without any proof, they gave me an eight-match ban, but with Terry, where they had proof, lip-readers, they gave him four,” he told Uruguayan television show RR Gol. “I’m South American, and I think that’s the root of all of this.

“Liverpool is a club that I dreamed about playing for as a boy. I have been with great players there, they know me, and I would love to continue for many more years at Liverpool. The stadium is spectacular, the fans are phenomenal.

“After the [Evra] suspension, people would come up to me - this is something that really touched me - and they would say: ‘Luis, forget everything and stay.’

“But I can’t forget as it was something that I had to suffer, that my family had to suffer, and away from football I have a family to support and who are hurt by these things.”

Suarez hit out at the media at the end of May, when he first declared his wish to leave Liverpool at a press conference in the build-up to Uruguay’s friendly against France.

He did so again in his latest interview, adding: “Ever since I arrived, I have felt bad - they have never judged me for my play but with the attitude that he dives, protests, makes gestures, racism... everything.

“They have never spoken well of me. For that reason, when I was told I could win the Player of the Year award, I said: ‘I will not get excited as I know that I will never win an important award in England.’”

Suarez claimed he had been mocked during a shopping trip following the Ivanovic incident.

He said: “About a week ago, I was walking in a shopping centre near Manchester and three or four guys asked me for a photo.

“While we were posing for it, my wife said to me: ‘Luis, get out of the photo.’ She noticed they were making biting gestures. I was with my wife and my daughter.

“Things like that get on your nerves. My wife was on the brink of tears, and they ran off laughing. You get tired of stuff like that.”

Suarez has hinted at a move to Real Madrid, who are understood to be interested in him.

But he added: “My agent said to remain calm rather than quiet - remain calm and, when there is concrete interest, you’ll be the first to know.”
