Ex-Anfield ace sticks it to the Gunners.
Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has stuck the boot into Arsenal after thanking his old captain at Liverpool, Steven Gerrard, for talking him out of a move to the Emirates, the Daily Mirror reports.
The Gunners were keen on the Uruguayan hitman 15 months ago, with a reported £40million plus £1 move rejected by the Reds.
But skipper Steven Gerrard urged him to hold off making any rash decisions by insisting that it wouldn’t be long before a bigger club came in for him.
“It would have been a big error that I would have made had it not been for Steven Gerrard,” Suarez admits, in his book ‘Luis Suarez, My Story: Crossing the Line’.
“We spoke about this when I went to Melwood to pick up my things at the end of the summer and he said: ‘You did the right thing, you waited until the best moment.'”
“He had told me to play well for Liverpool, give it another year and it will be Bayern Munich, Real Madrid or Barcelona coming for you and then you can go where you want, because you have the quality to play at any of those three clubs.”
