The Liverpool captain and midfielder Steven Gerrard has said that he feels that the Uruguay striker Luis Suarez is definitely the best striker he has played with at the club. The 25-year-old completed his £ 25 million move from Dutch football almost 2 years ago and he has been a revelation at Anfield. He has been able to single-handedly helped Liverpool keep afloat in the top half of the table, while he was instrumental in the Carling cup success the club enjoyed last season. This was the first trophy lifted by the club after more than six years, which made it special according to the Liverpool captain.

Even though the likes of Fernando Torres scored more goals at a considerably much higher pace, Steven Gerrard reckons that it is Suarez who has been best of the lot. The striker has developed a reputation for going down to the ground easily, but Gerrard reckons that there are very little players in the world capable of matching the talent within the Uruguay striker. Steven Gerrard also praised the ability of the Spanish midfielder Alonso, with whom he played at Liverpool. He reckons that Alonso is the best midfielder in the world for his dynamic ability.

“Absolutely, there’s no doubt. He could play in any national team in the world because he has so many great qualities. He is flexible. He can play at the English pace or he can associate with the ball very well. He is a very intelligent player, so he could play anywhere – not just any national team but any club in the world. But he has been a one-club man and that’s something I really admire,” said Alonso in praise of Steven Gerrard. Alonso left for Real Madrid in a £ 30 million deal a few seasons ago.
