Jan Molby has warned Liverpool that there is no player in the world who could replace Luis Suarez.

The 27-year-old’s future has been a source of speculation in recent days after he was handed a four-month ban by Fifa for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.

Unfortunately for Liverpool there is no one out there who can replace him

Barcelona are said to be monitoring Suarez’s situation with a view to a possible summer bid for the controversial Uruguay international.

But former Liverpool midfielder Molby feels that the Reds should put up with the striker’s “baggage” because he would be so difficult to replace.

“He looks like he could miss the first three games of the Champions League and that could have a big impact on their ability to progress but Liverpool must be pragmatic,” Molby told Yahoo.

“Their target for next season will be to make the Champions League again and obviously he will help that goal.

“For the rewards – and by rewards I mean Champions League football – Liverpool will, for the time being, put up with his baggage.

“Furthermore, unfortunately for Liverpool there is no one out there who can replace him, as Liverpool are not be able to attract players of his calibre at this moment in time. They buy potential.

“Suarez is head and shoulders above any other player that Liverpool have – and, as such, Liverpool won’t want to do anything to further upset their star man as he already has issues with the media.”
