The Ajax and Uruguay striker told the Sunday Times that though he once felt he could not thrive in England, the success of his fellow South American striker Carlos Tevez has now convinced him otherwise.

"(England) is a league that attracts me, a country where the football is really good," Suarez said.

"Alongside the Spanish league it is the best in the world. In England you have a lot of clubs with aspirations to become champions and they are also very strong in the Champions League at the European level.

"I used to think that English football was not my style. But I saw Tevez play at Boca and Corinthians and I never imagined that he would play in the Premier League.

"When I see the way that Tevez plays there I think I can be a big name in England. It's because of the energy, and the spirit they put into the game in England. Now, I think it's a kind of football that suits me."
