Liverpool skipper tips Suarez to shine at Anfield

Published Add your comment

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes Luis Suarez will have a major impact at Anfield.

The Uruguayan international made a £23 million move to Liverpool on deadline day in January, and scored at Anfield on his debut against Stoke at the start of the month.

Still battling for full fitness, Suarez has since gone through a dry goalscoring patch in his few chances with the Merseysiders. It's only a matter of time before the goals start to flow though, according to skipper Gerrard.

"Already we can see what a good player Luis is. He’s got good pace and awareness and he’s settled in very quickly," said Gerrard.

"We’ve all been delighted with his first few performances. Hopefully there is even more to come from him too."


Suarez moved to the Barclays Premier League with a stunning striker rate from his time in the Eredivisie, predominantly with Dutch giants Ajax.

An assist in the defeat to West Ham at the weekend shows that the player isn't just about goals though, and Gerrard is hoping the player has a bright future with Liverpool.

"He’s a fighter too and the type of character he is means he’s going to work really hard for the team," the England international continued.

"I expect him to be even better when he adjusts to the speed of football in this country. He hadn’t played many games in the weeks before he moved here so he’s still getting his match fitness. When he gets that, he will be very difficult to stop."
