Liverpool star Luis Suarez has revealed how his competitiveness has rubbed off on his daughter and she often cries when he beats her at games, according to the Daily Mail.

Suarez has been in exceptional form in the Premier League this season, topping the scoring charts with 24 goals, and has forged a great partnership with Daniel Sturridge.

The Uruguay international is no stranger to controversy and is set to come face-to-face with rival Patrice Evra, following the infamous race row incident, when they face Manchester United on Sunday.

With mistakes in the past, Suarez has admitted that his competitive streak is something he can't change. He was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: "I can never lose.

"I don’t like that and sometimes I can see and my wife can see that Delfina is the same.

"She doesn’t like losing and when we play in the house and she loses she cries and Sofia says she’s like me on the pitch!

"When I was a child I never liked to lose. From seven years-old I started to do competitions and things like that and I never liked to lose.

"I have worked very hard in my life to stay at this level and I can’t miss one ball. When the ball is going out I try my best to keep it in because I love football.

"Sometimes 100 per cent it’s from the street. But sometimes it’s another person because you try your best, you perform and you change. But it depends on the moment."

There was speculation in the summer that Suarez was a transfer target of Arsenal but the move failed to materialise and the striker hasn't looked back.

Since moving to Liverpool in 2011, the former Ajax player has become a fans' favourite and you would have thought he'd have a souse accent of his own.

But the 27-year-old - who will face England in the group stages at the World Cup - has admitted his delight with family life and but says the Liverpool accent is still hard to understand.

"Delfina speaks a lot in Scouse and English and I don’t understand," he added.

"Sometimes you lose the game and you go back to the house and I see my wife and two children and I forget everything.

"And when I score four like in the Norwich game I come home and my wife tells me forget that you have scored four on the pitch because here you are my husband!

"I think the time is so quick. It feels like a few months since I signed for Liverpool. But it’s three years and I’m so happy.

"When you are happy and you enjoy outside the pitch you try your best on the pitch. My family are so important for that."
