Reds skipper lavishes praise on Uruguay front man ahead of huge Zenit clash.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes that striker Luis Suarez is one of the best attackers currently operating in the world.
The Uruguay international has scored 23 goals for the Reds this season and the midfield player says that there are few better players than the 26-year-old on current form.
“For me he’s been player of the year, across this league and a lot more leagues,” Gerrard told BBC Radio Merseyside.
“There are probably only one or two people who you could say have been better than him this season.”
“How much better can he get? I’m not sure, but it’s a scary thought if he does improve on how he’s been performing this season.”
“You remember top players for games like this – important goals and big performances that turn situations in your favour,” Gerrard added about Thursday night’s second leg Europa League round-of-32 clash with Zenit St Petersburg at Anfield.
“We’re all there behind him as well – he’s not on his own – but I’d love nothing better than for this game to be decided on a bit of magic or brilliance from him. With the season he’s had, I think he does deserve it.”
