The 25-year-old, who was also booed during Uruguay’s opening two games against the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, was unable to prevent his country from making a premature exit in their final group game at the Millennium Stadium.
Suárez, who moved to Anfield in a £22.75m deal in January 2011, claims opposition fans boo him because they are “scared” of the former Ajax captain.
“I think they jeer me and they boo me here because they must be scared of facing a player like me,” said Suárez.
“They fear me, but that doesn’t affect me. I’m hurt because we lost and we are going home. We all had a dream and that was to win thegold medal here.
“I can take the abuse. I don’t mind. But I think it was a total lack of respect from the crowd to boo when we were trying to sing our national anthem. I think those things should not happen.”
Suárez was banned for eight games by the Football Association in January after being found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United’s Patrice Evra in a match at Anfield last October.
Uruguay defender Sebastián Coates, who is Suárez’s team-mate at Anfield, defended the Reds striker and encouraged supporters in the Premier League to change their behaviour towards the striker.
“I’m tired of this situation with Luis,” said Coates. “I think it has gone too far and I don’t like to see him being treated like this.
“I know the kind of person he is and I think the abuse he gets is very unfair.
“He knows all his team-mates and a whole country are fully behind him and I think fans over here should leave him alone.”
