Former Liverpool winger Suso admits he had to leave Anfield to save his career

Date Posted,December 21, 2016

Suso has revealed leaving Liverpool was the making of him.

The Spaniard signed for AC Milan in 2015 after five years on the red half of Merseyside.

Suso broke into the Liverpool side under Brendan Rodgers in 2012 but was shipped out to Almeria before joining Milan.

He initially struggled in Italy but has bounced back this term, scoring five times in the Serie A, reports the Liverpool Echo.

“At Liverpool there was no going forward and I needed an opportunity,” Suso told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“That’s why I chose Milan, who for me are a top European club.

“It was hard at first, but then I was given an opportunity thanks to (Vincenzo) Montella.”

Suso has earned the trust of Milan boss Montella going into Friday’s Italian Super Cup clash with Juventus in Qatar.

Club president Silvio Berlusconi has spoken about Suso’s “great class” and compared him to Milan legend Roberto Donadoni. Only two players in Serie A can better his tally of half a dozen assists this season.

“He has enormous potential, but needs to grow in his consistency and also self-confidence,” Montella said.

“He is a little shy and ought to take more risks in the final third. He has to be more incisive because he has the quality to do that.”
