Luis Suarez's captain says he is better than Cristiano Ronaldo

Published 3 Comments

Luis Suarez is better than Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Zlatan Ibrahimovic because only Lionel Messi is his superior in world football, according to Uruguay captain Diego Lugano.

The Liverpool striker, who is still serving his suspension for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic, was one of the most impressive players in the Premier League last season and finished only three goals behind Golden Boot winner Robin van Persie.

Suarez's form meant he was subject to much speculation regarding a transfer this summer and one of the clubs linked with him was Real Madrid, where Cristiano Ronaldo, who is regularly described as one of the top two players in world football, plies his trade.

However, Lugano feels Ronaldo does not deserve a place in the top two, claiming Suarez's talents make him the pretender to Messi's throne as the world's best.

"Surely, after Messi, we have the best striker in the world," he is quoted as saying in El Comercio.

Suarez has been impressive for Liverpool these past two seasons but his excellence was not matched by the Anfield club as a whole and he will not be playing in Europe this season, leading him to pursue a move away.

While Lugano's claims of Suarez being only second to Messi are debatable, there is no doubt that he is one of the leading stars of world football and Liverpool will find it difficult to hang on to him.
