Suarez is ‘special talent’ – Rodgers
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was understandably disappointed to lose his star man, but also paid tribute to Suarez:
“Luis is a very special talent and I thank him for the role he has played.”
Liverpool legend and form defensive stalwart Jamie Carragher, meanwhile, was also sad to see Suarez go, describing him as the second best player that he played with in a red shirt:
Luis was the best Lfc player I played with bar Gerrard. Gutted he’s gone but was inevitable he would go to Spain one day.
