Suarez scored 31 goals in 33 top-flight games to leave the Reds on the cusp of title glory before losing to Chelsea and drawing with Crystal Palace in two of their final three outings.
I put the team ahead of that and last season Liverpool came so close to winning the Premier League, which would have been spectacular
The Uruguay international scooped the PFA player of the year award in April following his brilliant form before sealing a much-anticipated £75m move to Barcelona in the summer transfer window.
And the controversial 27-year-old forward, who spent three-and-a-half seasons at Anfield, talked up his role in Liverpool’s title challenge.
“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,” Suarez said.
“Getting back into the Champions League was another target I had in mind.
“Personal success is always welcome and makes you happy, because that’s recognition of the good 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 missed six matches and scored all those goals in the Premier League without being the penalty-tager.”
Suarez moved to Liverpool in a £22.75m deal from Ajax in January 2011.
