England star claims ‘El Pistolero’ is one one one of the top five players currently in the world.
Liverpool midfield player Steven Gerrard has warned the club’s fans to enjoy world-class front man Luis Suarez “while he’s here”, with the Reds skipper predicting a wave of interest in the Uruguay attacker when the winter transfer window opens again for business in the new year, according to reports in the London Evening Standard.
Suarez is currently enjoying a rich vein of form in front of goal for the Merseyside giants, with the 26-year-old having registered an eye-catching 11 goals and two assists in just his 12 matches since returning to the side having served a ten-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on the arm in a Premier League match last April.
Meanwhile, the Uruguay international’s overall form since moving to Anfield for Eredivisie champions Ajax in January 2011 has been equally devastating, with Suarez having found the back of the net on 59 occasions in only 103 matches, 46 of which have arrived in 83 top-flight contests.
As a result, Gerrard has warned the Merseysiders’ supporters that it will now be desperately hard for the club to keep hold of their star man, as they managed to do during the summer, going forward.
“I think everyone knows how much I rate him,” said Gerrard.
“I think we are very lucky to have him and we have to enjoy him while he’s here.
“For me he is one of the top four or five players in the world for sure.”
