Cape Town - Barcelona forward Luis Suarez has revealed his performances for Liverpool last season allowed him to leave Anfield on good terms.
Suarez netted 31 Premier League goals for Brendan Rodgers' side last season despite missing the first six games of the season as a result of a ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic at the back end of the 2012/13 campaign.
The Uruguayan's impressive haul nearly inspired the Reds to their first Premier League title in over 20 years as they eventually finished runners-up to Manchester City.
And Suarez, who is yet to make his competitive debut for Barcelona, says the feats he accomplished last season have provided the perfect platform for him to kick on at the Nou Camp.
"Personal success is always welcome and makes you happy," the controversial Uruguayan told Barca TV.
"Because that’s recognition of the good work you have done. But I put the team ahead of that and last season Liverpool came so close to winning the Premier League, which would have been spectacular.
"I appreciate all the work the team did. But I missed six matches and scored all those goals in the Premier League without being the penalty-taker.
"I really could leave happy because if I hadn’t had the attitude and mentality to lead the team, I don’t think Liverpool would have done as well as they did. Getting back into the Champions League was another target I had in mind."
