Suarez seeks Anfield exit

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has once again reiterated his desire to leave the club in a television interview whilst on International duty with Uruguay.

The forward has been in sensational form for the Reds this season, although recently announced his desire to leave England after his untenable relationship with the British media.

Suarez has been heavily linked with a move to Spain with Real Madrid and it looks likely a deal abroad will be agreed in the coming weeks.

In an interview with television show RR Gol, Suarez stated: "Ever since I arrived I have felt bad, they [the media] 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.'"

"Liverpool is a club that I dreamt 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: people with tattoos of me, things that I could never have imagined.

"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."

On reports linking the forward to Real Madrid, Suarez stated:

"My agent said to remain calm rather than quiet – remain calm and when there is concrete interest you'll be the first to know."

"I'm not sure if I see myself in the white [Real Madird kit], the only thing I know is that I have a contract."

"Any player would like to play for a great team and Real Madrid certainly are that. Every player wants to reach the very top and Real Madrid are at the very top, but everything that has been said is just rumours, I have had nothing concrete."
