Luis Suarez: I’m one of the best players in the world
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has revealed his winning obsession is what has driven him to become one of the best players in the world.
The Uruguayan is enjoying his best season at Liverpool and leads the goalscoring charts with an astonishing 24 goals from just 23 matches. He also leads the way with assists, contributing to 10 overall.
He is one half of Liverpool’s deadly ‘SAS’ strike force with Daniel Sturridge and their form over the season has lifted the Reds up to second in the Premier League and into the centre of a title race.
“I’m 27, at my peak and feel very happy within the club because I’m part of the best football in the world: the Premier League,” Suarez stated.
“I’m enjoying every game I play and my family life here, which is very important. I like winning; I hate losing.
“I’m one of the best players in the world, so having the opportunity to win everything – and losing only occasionally – is what drives me. I’m ambitious. I want to win and won’t stop until I score one, two or more goals.
“I want to enjoy the here and now. Every player should live in the present, to enjoy what they’re doing. Thinking about things I did as a kid or at Ajax aren’t going to improve me on the pitch.
“I want to stay in that position and look to the future. What happened in the past happened – you have to move on.”
Suarez almost left the club last summer but Liverpool put their foot down and refused to sell him. The superstar striker then agreed a new contract that keeps him at the club until 2017. It also made him the highest paid player in the club’s history.
Suarez has been directly involved (scored or assisted) in 34 of Liverpool’s 73 league goals this season.
