Jovanovic, who spent a dismal 2010-11 campaign with Liverpool, has warned his 23-year-old team-mate he will be miserable on Merseyside.
Jovanovic, 28, said: “I shed lots of tears in England. I felt unhappy every day over there.
“London is a nice place to live but everywhere else is depressing. I have advised Suarez not to move to Liverpool.
“They’ll throw a lot of money at him but he should opt for Italy.”
