Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has confirmed he wants to leave the club claiming he does not feel "comfortable here anymore".
The Uruguayan striker told a press conference it was a good time for a change of environment, arguing that he has not "been judged as a player but based on other things".
"It is a difficult moment for me, my coach and my colleagues know that they (the media ) didn't treat me well. Because of the paparazzi I could not go in my garden, I could not go to the supermarket."
Suarez insisted his current club has nothing to do with his unhappiness:
"It's nothing against Liverpool, on the contrary, I feel very comfortable at the club, but I have a daughter and I do not want to hear bad things about her father.
"My reason for leaving is not the money. It's my family and image. I don't feel comfortable here anymore."
Suarez's future has been subject to intense speculation since his 10-game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
