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.
