Former Liverpool star Luis Suarez believes he was the key reason Liverpool challenged for title last season. Liverpool surprised everyone last season by playing some beautiful football and coming close to win the title.

Suarez scored 31 goals for Liverpool last season even after missing the first 6 games due to a ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic. Suarez was in brilliant form once he returned from his ban and formed a partnership with England international Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge ended up scoring 21 goals. Suarez made a £75m move to Barcelona in the summer transfer window and Liverpool are clearly missing him as they have started the season poorly.

Luis Suarez: “Personal success is always welcome and makes you happy, because that’s recognition of the good work you have done.

“But I put the team ahead of that and last season Liverpool came so close to winning the Premier League, which would have been spectacular.

“I appreciate all the work the team did. But I missed six matches and scored all those goals in the Premier League without being the penalty-taker.

“I really could leave happy because if I hadn’t had the attitude and mentality to lead the team, I don’t think Liverpool would have done as well as they did.

“Getting back into the Champions League was another target I had in mind.”

Suarez was handed a four-month ban from all football after biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup and is now set to return for Barcelona against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on October 25.
