The striker has become a regular target for other clubs' supporters following a string of diving accusations and a ban for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.

But in a revealing interview with Sky Sports News, Suarez insists the criticism is water off a duck's back while he still has the backing of his own fans and team-mates.

He said: "Everyone's got the right to have an opinion, but if I had to listen to every comment from every media outlet I'd go crazy.

"Whatever I do on the field, good or bad, is going to receive some comment so I deal with it by trying not to pay too much attention to it.

"What's important to me is the way my team-mates treat me, and the relationship I've got with them. I enjoy the support of the fans, and I'm at a club where I'm very happy. That's very important."

Suarez signed a new contract in the summer despite Liverpool's mid-table finish last season, and the Uruguayan is convinced the club has a bright future under Brendan Rodgers.

He said: "I'm really enjoying the manager's style of play, it really suits my game. We've got some fantastic youngsters here who are providing a lot to the side now and will give even more in future."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
