Luis Suarez has described himself as ‘an angel with a little demon’ during an interview with French television.
The Uruguayan striker discussed the difficulty in changing peoples perceptions of him, after a string of controversies throughout his career.
This season has seen Suarez’s discipline improve, as his 24 Premier League goals have fired the Reds to second in the Premier League table.
“I think that I am someone who is shy, really – I know how I am off the pitch in my everyday life, and I’m more of an angel with a little bit of the demon,” he said.
“It is very difficult for me to have this image because of who I really am. But I have learned about my behaviour, and today, you have to know I am someone very timid and for that I am very careful what I say.”
Liverpool currently sit six points clear of fifth placed Tottenham, and also hold a game in hand over their north London rivals, making Brendan Rodgers side strong favourites to secure a top four finish.
And Suarez has revealed he is driven by experiencing a Champions League night at Anfield.
“Being able to play a Champions League match at Anfield, that would be incredible, something unforgettable,” he explained.
“I would really like to live this experience. Today with my club the main aim is to qualify for the Champions League.”
