Suarez admits Gerrard stuck close with him during his biting controversy.
"Steve Gerrard spoke a lot to me, gave me advice and told me what I needed to hear," he told Uruguayan radio station Sport 890. "When I was separated, he said he didn't like that and wanted me to be with the group. Today I feel very supported by my team-mates.
"The fans' support was also very important. I always could walk on the street with no trouble. I was never threatened or anything like that, it was all made up. The people told me to stay. I work hard for Liverpool and I will always be thankful to the club."
