Suarez has his say on Gerrard’s decision to leave Anfield at the end of the season.
Former Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has become the latest person to have their say on Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard’s decision to quit Anfield at the end of the season, report the Mail, with the Uruguayan, who joined Barcelona for a huge fee in the summer, describing the midfielder as “irreplaceable” for the Reds.
Suarez himself is still adapting to life in La Liga after making the summer move to the Nou Camp, although he was on the scoresheet in the midweek Copa del Rey thrashing of lowly Elche, but the former Ajax star enjoyed a fine relationship with his captain during his successful stint on Merseyside.
The Uruguayan suggested that it is not just Gerrard the player that Liverpool will struggle to replace once he moves to Major League Soccer at the end of the season, but also Gerrard the leader and the huge amount that he has come to represent the club during his long career at Anfield:
“There are a small number of players in the world that are irreplaceable, and Steven is one of them. Not just irreplaceable as a player, but also as a captain, and what he represents for Liverpool.”
Suarez did also indicate that he believes Gerrard will one day return to Liverpool on a different capacity, however, with talk already having begun that he could one day return to Anfield as manager of the club:
“All I can say is that it would never surprise me to see him return to Liverpool in some capacity. To say he loves the club would not do his feelings for Liverpool justice, Liverpool is a part of him.”
