Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has played down the 'hero' tag already placed on his shoulders by fans at Anfield.

The Uruguayan international has been an instant hit with the club's loyal followers, providing some memorable moments in less than two months with the Merseysiders.

However, the 24-year-old keeps himself grounded despite his already high status at the club, and believes he's got some way to go before becoming a true legend at the club.

"I've only been here a month-and-a-half and it's good to see the fans are happy. I came here to work hard for the team and to do my absolute best. If they are singing my name maybe it shows I'm doing my job well," the former Ajax forward told LFC weekly magazine.

"But there are a lot of games and there is a lot of time to go before I am a real hero. It's too early for that."

Suarez went on to talk about his youth, and where he learned the game with his brothers on the streets back in his homeland.


"I'm not joking when I tell you I am the worst of all of us," said the forward.

"The best among us brothers works in a bakery business for a living. He plays regularly for fun. He's more skilful and gifted than the rest of us."

Maybe the Reds should dispatch some scouts quickly to the south American country in search of another Suarez superstar!
