Luis Suarez underwent surgery on the meniscus in his left knee on May 22, but he made an immediate impact on his return scoring two brilliant goals to keep Uruguay‘s World Cup hopes alive. Earlier, Suarez missed Uruguay’s unexpected 3-1 loss to Costa Rica.
“I think there are two periods of Luis Suárez,” Mourinho told Yahoo! Sport.
“The one period, before I arrived [back at Chelsea] he had bead behaviour. he had that situation with Ivanovic, he had the suspension for a long period.
“Obviously he was criticised. After that there is a second period of Suárez, which was this last season and this season he was voted by the English football press association the player of the season, so I think they all recognise that he is a fantastic player.
“When his behaviour is OK, people give him the credit that he deserves. I speak by myself. When he dives and he tries to get penalties out of nothing I don’t like the situation.
“But when he plays like he did many, many times for Liverpool, and when he plays like he did [against England] I have to say absolutely amazing.
“The commitment, the connection with the players, the connection with the supporters – I have to say, amazing.”
Suarez scored 31 goals last season, equalling the record held by Alan Shearer and Cristiano Ronaldo, despite missing the first five games of the season. Meanwhile, reports in Spanish media suggest that Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid both want to sign Luis Suarez in the summer. Reports also suggest that Barcelona might also use Alexis Sanchez as a part of the deal.
