Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is convinced that Luis Suárez is on his way to becoming one of the world’s best strikers.

The 24-year-old Uruguay international has impressed for The Reds since moving to Anfield from Ajax in January, scoring eight goals for Kenny Dalglish’s men this season.

Agger admits he and his team-mates struggle to contain the threat of Suárez during training sessions at Melwood – and the centre-half is tipping the striker develop into one of the world’s most lethal front-men.

“I think his performances speak for themselves,” Agger told LFC Magazine. “Everybody can see that he is a class player. He is so different. I cannot find any other striker that looks like him or plays like him.

“It’s not because he does any fancy things or anything like that, he just gets the ball in front of goal and creates the chances for himself. Sometimes the way he gets the ball and the way he gets in on goal – you don’t believe it.

“But all credit to him and if he can continue like that, he is definitely going to be one of the world’s best.

“He does it every day in training, so we know how hard he is to play against. People can see every Saturday afternoon that defenders are struggling to keep him at bay.

“It gives everybody in our team a boost to know we have someone like that in attack. To achieve something, I think you need players like that in your team.”
