Luis Suarez Update

Luis Suarez

Before the Uruguyan returned to his country for international duty this weekend, the striker picked up his third LFC Standard Chartered Player of the Month Award. The striker collected 70 per cent of the vote.

“It’s a bit of a surprise because to win it three months running makes me almost feel a bit embarrassed, but as long as people realise I’m just doing my job and I’m working hard for the team then that’s great.

“I think if we had managed to pick up a couple more victories in those games we deserved to – the home games against Manchester United and Norwich – we’d obviously be a little bit higher up the league.

“The important thing is the team has been playing well and, for the most part, getting the right results – but we still know we can do that little bit better.”

“Obviously for a player it is very nice to pick up this sort of award – it’s an extra source of motivation. The important thing is the dressing room is happy and that no matter who wins these awards, things are going well for the whole squad.”

“I’ve scored some good goals, but for now I think that one at Stoke is right up there because of how the game was going at the time, it was a nutmeg and we were playing away in a difficult game. All that makes it one of the best of my career so far.”

“I’m happy because the team has been performing well, but as a striker I am always going to get plenty of chances and I could probably have converted one or two more.

“I also know strikers go through periods where they are trying so hard to score and they don’t always go in. The main thing is I am playing well and the whole team is playing in the right manner.

“I think all of the lads are playing well and although we know we have some injuries to key players like Stevie and Carra, we know we have players who can step up and perform well.

“That’s the good thing about having such a big squad – we have the quality for anyone to come in, do a good job and replace these players.”

Today Suarez told Uruguayan media that he did not racially abuse Evra and that the FA have no evidence against him, though he did admit that they had a verbal clash during the match.

‘These are things that happen in football, things in the heat of the moment, that leave someone looking bad,’ said Suarez.

‘Now we have to see how the matter is decided and then, the United player (Evra) as much as me, we are going to have things clear. And wherever the fault lies, we are going to have to say sorry.

‘The FA will have to clarify things with him, because there is no evidence that I said anything racist to him. I said nothing of the sort.

‘There were two parts of the discussion, one in Spanish and one in English. I did not insult him; it was just a way of expressing myself. I called him something his team-mates at Manchester City call him. And even they were surprised’

Suarez’s goal tally is seven for the season so far.
