Suarez knew the pressure was on when signing for Liverpool

Luis Suarez admits he felt under pressure to deliver after sealing a £22.8m move to Liverpool. With Fernando Torres in the process of completing a record-breaking move to Chelsea, it was imperative that Liverpool landed a proven marksman.

And Suarez has revealed that he felt intimidated by the prospect of running out at Anfield.
