Barcelona star Luis Suarez: I hated doing this at Liverpoo

LUIS SUAREZ says he isn’t a natural leader.

Suarez, 30, left Liverpool to join Barcelona for £75m during the summer of 2014.

He was the star of the show throughout his time on Merseyside, scoring 82 goals in 133 appearances for the Reds and wearing the captain’s armband on occasion.

However the Uruguay international is joined by a plethora of top talent and big personalities at the Nou Camp, where he gets to play alongside the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar.

But, speaking to France Football, Suarez has revealed he is perfectly happy taking a backseat every now and then, claiming the responsibility of skippering Liverpool was difficult for him.

“No, on the contrary,” he said, when asked if he hates sharing the spotlight in Catalonia.

“I like to play low profile, be one element among others.

“I’m here to lend a helping hand to the team, but making decisions is not really my thing.

“In Liverpool, I had the opportunity to be captain, and it was not natural to me.

“Even if people have a hard time believing it, I’m pretty shy. I’m not used to being put forward.”
