Liverpool striker Suarez: Tevez inspired me to come to England

Liverpool ace Luis Suarez admits he was convinced about a move to England by the success of Manchester City's Carlos Tevez.

It was seeing the success his fellow South American had in England which convinced the Uruguay star he could crack it himself when Liverpool came calling two years ago.

Suarez revealed: "I watched Tevez when I was playing in Holland and I could see he was doing really well.

"His success was one of the things which motivated me to come here.

"I thought that if Tevez could do really well, then I could do too as I have a similar physical stature."
