It was a new experience, you hear everything, it caught my attention on a throw-in, one of them shouted at me "fracasado", I kept looking at him, I didn't see who it was, it's a typical Uruguayan shout, although it's nice to live this experience," he said in the interview.

Luis Suarez in Liverpool

Suarez signed for Premier League side Liverpool in 2011 and won the League Cup in his first full season. In 2014, he equalled the Premier League record for goals in a 38-game season and won his first European Golden Shoe.

Hailing from Ajax for £22.8 million on a five-and-a-half-year contract, he was at the time the club's most expensive signing. Suárez wore the number seven shirt, which had been worn by Liverpool legends Kenny Dalglish, then manager Kevin Keegan and Peter Beardsley.

On 27 April 2014, he won the PFA Player of the Year award, becoming the first non-European to win it, in that season he finished with 31 goals in 33 appearances, earning him the Premier League Golden Boot. On 21 May 2014, Suárez topped the list of "Europe's most influential players" for the year, ahead of Lionel Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Cristiano Ronaldo, according to a Bloomberg survey of Europe's top five leagues. He left for Barcelona in June of the same year.
