Suarez claims Man Utd have media in their pocket

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez believes the media is helping Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United in their quest to regain the Barclays Premier League title, reports the Daily Mail. The Uruguayan also slammed the media for treating his South American compatriots differently to native players.

He said: 'When someone comes and says to me something bad about being a South American, I don't cry, because that happens inside the pitch.

'I have my conscience clean. But as I have said: Manchester United controls the media, they are powerful and the media will always help them.

'I can help Liverpool today. We are united and we can play well. Liverpool doesn't depend on me.'

'It's complicated to play here in England. As Carlitos (Tevez) and Kun (Aguero) has said, it's complicated for a South American footballer to be here as we are treated differently to the local footballers.

'But they have their culture, they are like this, you know. I have to play football, which is what I always wanted, but I have suffered a lot for being a footballer.
