Luis Suarez credit Liverpool and Brendan Rogers for his success, fighting a hamstring injury

In an interview with Squawka, Luis Suarez has credited both Brendan Rogers and Liverpool for contributing to his development as a football player as well as for ensuring his move from Ajax for 22.7 million pounds.

In speaking with the website, Suarez explained, “Your game changes all the time. If you are not learning every day in training, you are going backwards as a player. Liverpool developed me and I did well in the Premier League, scoring hat-tricks or getting winners, and that gives you the confidence to think you can be a game-changer when you go out on the pitch.”

As for his arrival at Barca last summer for 80 million Euros, he remains an important part to the three-pronged attack that comprise Neymar, Messi and himself – all South Americans – and who have contributed 117 goals so far this season.


He attributes his success at Barca due to his development at Liverpool where he gained confidence as a game-changer. Of course, the only difference that he finds is that Barca has some of the very best midfielders of this generation.

He admits that he is in his element when playing for Barca since their game is all about playing the right ball at the right time and that he intends to take advantage of as much as possible.

That said, he is battling a hamstring injury which caused him to be substituted before the second half of the Champions League semi-finals against Bayern Munich. This means that he might not be play the Copa Del Rey final at the Camp Nou on Saturday against Athletic Bilbao.
