Suarez: I'll feed off hate

LUIS Suarez is ready to meet the worst abuse Old Trafford can throw at him and the hotter it gets, the happier he will be.

"I know against Man Utd it is going to be tense because I'm going to face Evra," claimed the Uruguayan hitman.

"But I'm used to having fans whistle at me. I hope nothing unusual happens. I'll have to forget what happened for that moment."

Suarez hopes to channel his response to the vitriol which comes his way into a performance which will leave Manchester United fans even more annoyed with him.

"I do know Man Utd fans are going to try to make me feel uncomfortable. But I have to tell them, they are going to spur me on if they whistle at me."

Suarez has also broken his silence on his eight-match ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra. "My conscience was clear," he said. "I knew what I did and there is a kind of football law that says 'what happens on the pitch, stays on the pitch' and that's the end of the story."
