Liverpool fans are looking up with interest today in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that they know the reason behind Luiz Suarez’ exit last summer.
The forward left for Barcelona and is now being hailed as one third of the best front three in La Liga – but according to the player himself, we could have kept him in England had it not been for the media.
Suarez hit out at the press noting: ‘They talk too much and they didn’t leave me in peace and I left because I was tired of them, but they continue looking for something.’
As one of our regulars notes over a weekend beer and burger at the bar, the fact that Suarez caused a fair bit of the media attention, and has more than a couple of misdemeanours on his list, it evidently means nothing to the player who seems set to continue blaming everyone else for his woes.
He might be a star on the football field but there is no escaping the fact that Suarez brings a heap of trouble with it – but as Chelsea and Diego Costa have found out, sometimes it is worth it.
Liverpool fans. Do you think Suarez is right? Is there an unfair campaign against him or is this just a case of playing the victim? Let us know your thoughts below.
