Suso explains why he swapped Liverpool for AC Milan
Suso wasn't happy with Liverpool's offering in a economic or sporting sense
Suso has revealed that he wasn’t happy with Liverpool’s offer in an economic and sporting sense after the playmaker swapped Anfield for the San Siro.
The 21-year-old signed a four-year deal with AC Milan at the weekend after he failed to agree a new deal with the 18-time English champions.
Suso has been used sparingly by manager Brendan Rodgers this season, although he featured heavily in the Northern Irishman’s first Anfield campaign.
And the Spaniard took a swipe at Liverpool following his Milan move, setting his sights on firing the seven-time European winners back into the Champions League.
“My contract was set to expire in June and Liverpool’s offers did not satisfy me, neither economically nor in a sporting sense,” Suso told Marca.
“I arrived very much as a boy and I have learned a lot. I have grown, but I have not noticed a lot of trust in me. I wanted a change of scenery. And Milan offers me everything that I needed. It’s a great [club], with an incredible history, but now it is not at its best.
“My objective? To play as much as possible and to return Milan to the Champions League. It’s where the club should be.”
On Saturday, Milan’s new signing took to Instagram to pose a photo of the 21-year-old posing in front of the club’s logo following his move.
Suso wrote on Instagram: “Very happy to communicate that I’m a AC Milan player. Very happy to be part of a really big club with a big name.. Let’s start another history in another place. Can’t wait… HAPPY DAYS”
The Spanish midfielder spent last season on loan at La Liga side Almeria, scoring three goals and making seven assists in 26 games.
Suso, who moved to Liverpool from Cadiz in 2010, scored one goal in 21 appearances for the Merseyside outfit.
