Liverpool’s Suárez: Gerrard is the best midfielder I’ve ever seen
Striker Luis Suárez has labelled Steven Gerrard as the best midfielder the Liverpool striker has ever seen or played with
Luis Suárez has hailed Steven Gerrard as the best midfielder he has ever seen following the Liverpool captain’s 600th appearance for the Reds.
Gerrard reached the milestone against Newcastle earlier this month and secured his 100th England cap in Wednesday’s friendly against Sweden.
And Suárez admits he is full of respect for his 32-year-old team-mate, who he rates as the best midfielder he has ever played with.
He told Liverpool’s website: “He’s a real legend at this club, for many reasons; the time he’s been at the club, for all what he has given for the club, for the great team-mate he is, for all the years and all those 600 games he’s played here, which is by no means an easy thing to achieve at a club like Liverpool, and for his modesty and the classy person he is.
“I think he is a player for whom you have to show enormous respect. He has always shown utmost respect to the club and has always remained here out of his love for the club, and for me he is the best midfielder I’ve ever seen play or been able to play alongside.”
Suarez added: “I can’t speak about the years before I was born or before I can remember, but I don’t think that the club will ever have another player like Steven Gerrard.”
