Loved Suarez almost too much. I think he even eclipsed Gerrard in generating emotion for me, don’t know why. Just something about Luis.

Good luck Suárez! Easily the best striker on the planet. Never seen someone with as much hunger & desire to win like him in recent history.

Not the best Liverpool player I’ve ever seen, but he had the best season and was by far the most entertaining.

He’ll be talked about for years. Incredible player.

Glad the Suarez saga is over. Not surprised how it ended. The club will be better off without him.

Unbelievable player, Luis. Hope he does well at Barcelona.

So that’s Luis Suarez gone to Barcelona… Inevitable. Say what you want, but I’m going to miss seeing him play week in week out.
