Liverpool’s Suarez has stepped up his bid to join Real Madrid, claiming he is being hounded out of England after his wife was reduced to tears by taunting fans.
Suarez, 26, who is on international duty with Uruguay ahead of the Confederations Cup, said: “About a week ago I was walking in a shopping centre near Manchester with my wife and daughter and three or four guys asked me for a photo. While we were posing for it my wife said to me, ‘Luis, get out of the photo’.
“She noticed they were making biting gestures. Things like that get on your nerves. My wife was on the brink of tears and the blokes ran off laughing. You get tired of stuff like that.
“I have suffered, my family have suffered, and away from football I have a family that supports me and these things hurt them.” Liverpool have not received any offers for Suarez but he has made it clear he does not want to return to Anfield.
He said: “I don’t know if I will become a Madrid player. The only thing I know is that I have a contract. Every player would like to play for a huge team and Real Madrid is a huge team.
“But everything that has been said so far is just speculation, I haven’t received any concrete offers.”
Suarez, who is serving a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic and was suspended for eight games for racially abusing Manchester United’s Patrice Evra the season before last, also repeated his attack on the English press.
He said: “As soon as I arrived in England I didn’t like the press. They have never judged me on how I play football, they judged me on my attitude.
“They said I dived, moaned, postured, they said I was racist, everything.
“They have never spoken well of me.”
Suarez has also accused the FA of double standards over his punishment for the Evra incident.
He added: “Without any proof they gave me an eight-match ban but with John Terry, where they had proof and lip-readers, they gave him four. But I’m South American and that’s the root of it all.”
