Suarez: I hated being Liverpool captain

Picture: Luis

Former Liverpool goal-scoring machine Luis Suarez has admitted that his time as Liverpool captain was not among his favourite ones.

Suarez captained Liverpool for the first time against Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup and despite being  a natural choice for the captain armband due to his quality he reveals his shy nature rebelled against the burden attached to it.

“I like the low profile, to be a player among others,” he told France Football. “I am here to give a helping hand to the team but taking decisions, that’s not really my thing.

“At Liverpool, I had the chance to be captain, and it was not easy for me. Even if people find it hard to believe, I am someone quite shy. I am not used to pushing myself forward.

“There are players who are more marketable than me, more gifted with the media. But that does not bother me. The individual titles that I have been able to win, I got them on the pitch thanks to my performances and the help of my team-mates.”

Suarez’s goal-scoring feats continue with current La Liga leaders Barcelona as he has netted 20 goals in 24 matches so far.
