Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has spoken on his knowledge of the Reds, stemming back to his childhood as a ten-year-old boy in Uruguay.

The South American star has been an instant hit at Anfield, producing a number of eye-catching performances for the Merseysiders following his January switch from Ajax.

A club steeped in history, Suarez was well aware of the great tradition that goes with the Reds' and admitted that it's been exciting to play for the club in his brief time with Liverpool thus far.

"The whole world knows what history Liverpool have," Suarez told FourFourTwo.

"They are one of the best teams in Europe, some great players have played here and I was very excited to join. When I was 10-years-old I used to play as them on PlayStation but I never imagined I would play here."

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has also made an instant impact on the former Montevideo de Nacional, with the 24-year-old still learning off the Scottish legend.


"I've already learned a lot from him. It seems like it's only been a little while since he was last coaching," he continued in the interview.

"The first thing he said to me was 'Hola, bienvenido' [Hello, welcome]. He still talks to me in Spanish because I don't understand English fully yet. This makes me feel wanted."
