Luis Suarez: I want to play with Ronaldo

Luis Suarez has fuelled speculation linking him with a move away from Liverpool by revealing he'd like to play with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Uruguayan rocked Reds fans last month by stating he wants to leave the club, suggesting that the unfair treatment he receives from the media as the key factor.

Real Madrid have been heavily linked with the 26-year old and Suarez has admitted that he'd like to play alongside their star man Ronaldo.

"Of course I would like to play with Ronaldo, he is a great player," Suarez said in a press conference ahead of Uruguay's World Cup qualifier against Venezuela.

"You never know, but it is complicated. At the moment he is in Madrid and I am in Liverpool and I do not know what is going to happen."

Spain is regarded as the strikers ideal destination as he looks to move away from the Premier League.

Suarez was banned for ten matches towards the end of last season for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic and is certainly not a stranger to controversy in the Premier League. 

He has admitted to diving on multiple occasions and received an eight match ban after racial abusing Patrice Evra. Despite all this, Suarez believes the English media vilifies him suggesting this is the reason he wants to leave the club.

The controversial striker also spoke about that incident with Ivanovic and apologised for his actions. However, he believed that the reaction from the media in the aftermath was over-the-top.

"I know I made a mistake in the incident with Ivanovic - it was me, my fault, and he did not do anything to me," Suarez added.

"I was angry because I had given away a penalty for handball. I was the reason for the penalty against my team - I saw red and completely lost it."

"I can't really explain it and I am so sorry – but the reaction was amazing."
