Barcelona striker Luis Suarez "sad" about upsetting Liverpool supporters

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez understands why Liverpool fans were upset at him for celebrating after scoring against them in last season's Champions League clash.

Luis Suarez has admitted that he is "sad" at missing out on the Premier League title at Liverpool and for riling the club's fanbase by celebrating a goal against them last season.

The Barcelona striker spent three years at Anfield and came close to guiding the Reds to top spot in 2013-14, his final season on Merseyside before heading to Catalonia.

Suarez has been a major hit at Camp Nou and netted against his former club in last year's Champions League semi-final tie, which Liverpool won 4-3 on aggregate following an incredible second-leg fightback.

Reflecting on that goal and his spell at Liverpool, the Uruguay international told the Reds' official website: "In the last year when I played there at Anfield I was so sad for the supporters [that we missed out on the title].

"I know some Liverpool supporters were angry with me because I celebrated a goal against Liverpool here in Camp Nou [last season] and for that I am so sad.

"I accept that and I say that hopefully they understand my situation: we were playing at home and in the Champions League semi-final.

"I lived one of the best moments of my life there and I think the supporters didn't forget how my attitude was in the Liverpool shirt. Now hopefully they are so happy with the Premier League trophy this year."

Suarez scored 82 goals in 133 appearances for Liverpool and finished as the Premier League's top scorer in his final season.
