Suarez says captaincy wasn’t for him

    Suarez wore the armband against Spurs on 15th December 2013

    Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has said that he didn’t take well to captaincy at Liverpool.

    The Uruguay international was given the armband for the Premier League trip to face Tottenham Hotspur back in 2013.

    And things went well for Suarez as he scored twice in a 5-0 win – but he says it wasn’t easy being skipper that day.

    “I like the low profile, to be a player among the others,” Suarez told France Football.

    “I am there to give a helping hand to the team but taking decisions, that is not really my thing.

    “At Liverpool, I had the chance to be captain and it was not easy for me.

    “Even if people find it hard to believe, I am someone quite shy. I am not used to pushing myself forward.

    “There are players who are more marketable than me, more gifted with the media. But that does not bother me.

    “The individual titles that I have been able to win, I got them on the pitch thanks to my performances and the help of my team-mates.” he finished.

    It didn’t look like he had any issues with the role!
