Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Leiva were quick to wish their former Liverpool team-mate Luis Suarez a happy 28th birthday on Saturday.

The Brazilian pair were close to their fellow South American during his three-and-half year stay at Anfield before the forward joined Barcelona in a £75m deal in the summer transfer window.

Lucas played alongside the former Ajax captain during the Uruguay international’s spell at Liverpool, and the Inter Milan target paid a special tribute to his close friend on Instagram.

Lucas wrote: “Happy Birthday My friend, enjoy your day !!!”

Coutinho, who joined Liverpool two years after Suarez’s move to Anfield, posted a photo of the pair embracing as he wrote a touching message for the former Liverpool man on social media.

“Happy birthday my friend. May God bless you today and always. Wishing you much health, success, peace and love,” Coutinho posted.

Finally, Barcelona superstar Neymar spoke of his delight to being playing alongside the Uruguay international in the Catalan side.

“Happy birthday my crack, much happiness in your life … For me has been a great pleasure to enjoy our time together on the pitch!!! luchooooo vamoooos @ luissuarez9”
