Liverpool forward Suarez is now a more relaxed individual

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez insists he has returned from suspension a changed person. The Uruguay international has scored three goals in two appearances since serving his 10-game ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.

Last weekend the 26 year old showed his softer side by coming onto the pitch for the pre-match handshakes against Crystal Palace with new-born son Benjamin and three-year-old daughter Delfina, and he believes his family are a steadying influence for him on the field.

"I am aware that in recent matches that I played I've been calmer," he said on his return to Uruguay ahead of crucial World Cup qualifiers.

"I am very self-critical and I realised that playing well, with more tranquillity, is helping me a lot.

"I realise and I prefer to continue and not be the same as before."
