The forward believes he was the catalyst in the Reds’ success.
FC Barcelona forward Luis Suarez has announced that Liverpool cannot win the Premier League title without him and he was the reason they came so close last season.
Suarez scored 31 league goals in 2013/14 and as a result of his brilliant form was named PFA Player of the Year and was then snapped up by Barca over the summer for a whopping £75m.
The 27-year-old is yet to play his first competitive game for the Catalans as he serves a four-month ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil – which expires on October 24.
In his absence the Reds have struggled to recreate the form of last term and Suarez says that he was the main reason that they did so well over the previous 12 months.
“I really could leave happy because if I hadn’t had the attitude and mentality to lead the team, I don’t think Liverpool would have done as well as they did,” the Uruguay international was quoted by the Mirror.
“I appreciate all the work the team did. But I missed six matches and scored all those goals in the Premier League without being the penalty-taker.”
Suarez is set to make his Barca debut in El Clasico against Real Madrid on October 25.
