Suarez could be club's greatest - Carragher

Published Add your comment

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher thinks striker Luis Suarez has the potential to become the club's greatest-ever player.

The Uruguayan has made an astonishing start to the season - scoring 14 goals in 10 Premier League appearances - despite missing the first six games through suspension.

Carragher told Sky Sports: ""I think he could [be seen as the club's greatest].

"I think in terms of ability as a player he could be the best player to play for Liverpool. That's in terms of natural ability and what we see week in and week out."

However, the former defender believes that in order to reach the heights of the likes of Steven Gerrard and Kenny Dalglish, Suarez must start winning trophies.

He said: "To be known as a top player or the best player at the club alongside people like Dalglish and Gerrard who have won European Cups he's got to win big games and trophies and cup finals.

"It's about longevity as well. He's got to be there all the time and put a great stint in for the club, but in terms of natural ability he's probably is as good as anything he club has ever had.

"Kenny Dalglish scored the winner in the European Cup Final, Steven Gerrard gave his performance in Istanbul and Suarez would need moments like that."

The 35-year old added: "If he did have moments like that he could be number one."

Suarez has certainly proved his credentials once more so far this campaign, and his darker side now seems to be a thing of the past.

Manager Brendan Rogers will be hoping his main striker can guide them through the tough festive period, although that may prove tricky as the Reds have been struck by several injuries of late, most notably to Gerrard and also Daniel Sturridge.
