Being Liverpool Captain Was Hard –Luiz Suarez

Barcelona forward Luis Suarez has confessed that he found it difficult to be Liverpool captain. The Uruguay international stepped in to wear the captain's armband on occasion during his time at Anfield when the Reds were without usual skipper Steven Gerrard.

Suarez almost helped steer Liverpool to the Premier League title under Brendan Rodgers in 2014, earning the PFA and FWA Player of the Year awards in the process, and the striker insists he is content with his career achievements.

He said “I like the low profile, to be a player among the others, I am there to give a helping hand to the team but taking decisions, that is 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. In England, I had the luck to be recognised at the same time by the players and the press. At the international level, I know there are players who are above me. But that is not something that bothers me.”
