Former Liverpool defender, and current TV pundit Jamie Carragher, thinks Luis Suarez’s recent displays prove that he has the ability to one day be recognised as Liverpool’s greatest ever player, reports the Mirror.
In his past two Premier League outings, the brilliant Uruguayan has scored six goals, including four mesmerising strikes against Norwich, in a game which many football fans have declared as one of the all-time best individual performances.
“I think in terms of ability as a player he could be the best player to play for Liverpool. That’s in terms of natural ability and what we see week in and week out,” said Carragher, lauding his former teammate.
“But to be known as a top player or the best player at the club alongside people like Dalglish and Gerrard who have won European Cups he’s got to win big games and trophies and cup finals,” continued Carragher.
Despite scoring 14 league goals in 10 matches this term in the league, Suarez has only ever won a League Cup trophy with the Reds.
“It’s about longevity as well. He’s got to be there all the time and put a great stint in for the club, but in terms of natural ability he’s probably is as good as anything he club has ever had,” the ex-England centre-half continued.
“Kenny Dalglish scored the winner in the European Cup Final, Steven Gerrard gave his performance in Istanbul and Suarez would need moments like that. If he did have moments like that he could be number one.”
The chances of Suarez eventually fulfilling this prophecy are slim, with the 26-year-old striker almost certain to leave to a world elite club at the end of the season.
This summer, Liverpool turned down a £40m offer from Arsenal for his services, but it is likely that Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich will come in for him in June if he carries on in this ludicrous vein of form.
