Suarez: I Was Wrong

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez admits he was wrong in the past, but says he is working hard to improve his attitude.

The Uruguayan international has been in the papers for all the right reasons of late as he picked up the Barclays Premiership ‘Player of the Month’ award for December after finding the back of the net ten times in that period, an English Premier League record.

It is a vast change from the Suarez who was making the headlines two seasons before for racial abusing Manchester United’s Patrice Evra, which saw him banned for eight games, and then a ten-match ban which he received at the end of last season for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.

The striker says he has now turned the corner and is working on his temperament in order to show the fans the true Suarez.

“My temperament, attitude, desire and hunger when I am on the pitch has always been like this and will continue to be this way, I now know I have to control it more,” said Suarez.

“An example of this was about two weeks ago when I had an open shot at goal and hit the post and it rebounded close to my hand and I was about to go for it and then I stopped.

“If the same thing had happened two months ago I would have gone for it. These things stay with me, but I tell you I am changing.

“I am improving my attitude on the pitch because I know I was wrong in the past and I was creating an image of myself I know wasn't me.”
