Luiz Saurez Liverpool’s top scorer and most goal scorer in Premier League 2012-13 season, but he said he wants to leave Anfield.
Liverpool wishes to keep him, but he has decided to move from Liverpool. The reason is not about club, it’s about his happiness in England.
Saurez said: “It is a difficult moment for me. My coach and my colleagues know that they [the media] didn’t treat me well. Because of the paparazzi I could not go in my garden, I could not go to the supermarket. My reason for leaving is not the money. It’s my family and image. I don’t feel comfortable here any more.”
“It’s a good moment for a change of environment because of all I’ve been through in England, where I haven’t been judged as a player but based on other things. I had a hard time, very hard, in the things that have been said are lies. One has limits and the family also suffers. They treated me bad and it would be understandable if one day I go to my club [and the media are waiting for him] but I cannot walk my baby – the paparazzi are always there.
“My family, my image – that’s what matters to me most. The coach and some colleagues know that I suffered, I was treated badly and I did not feel comfortable and they know perfectly.
“It’s nothing against Liverpool, on the contrary, I feel very comfortable at the club, but I have a daughter and I do not want [her] to hear bad things about her father. In England they talk about many things and in some ways I feel uncomfortable. I do not know when I’m going and I do not know if I’m staying. If I stay it is because it is a great club but also in turn I know that it is difficult because of the harassment I get from the press.”
If he leaves Liverpool, he is expecting to join Spain giants Real Madrid.
