Liverpool news – Suarez “can be a great”, Carra worries over future, Praise for Stoke

Suarez “can be a great”.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes Luis Suarez can become an all time great for the Merseyside giants.

Injuries have restricted the Reds skipper to just three appearances alongside the livewire Uruguayan striker since his January transfer from Ajax.

Gerrard is looking forward to the prospect of linking up with Suarez and feels the No.7 has all the right ingredients to prove himself as a Reds legend over the coming years.

The skipper told LFC TV: “He’s still young enough and I’m sure he’s going to get even better than he is now, which is a scary thought, he’s got the appetite for the game to learn and get better.”

Gerrard also added: “Hopefully he will go on here for a long time because he’s certainly got a massive part to play at this club in the future – the history is there to be written.”.

Praise for Stoke.

Jamie Carragher praised the Stoke City defence for a dogged display at the Britannia stadium on Saturday.

The Reds defender said: “They defended great. They do great, their keeper and the back four. They’ve been like that for a long time, especially at home, and being a defender myself, you can only admire how they did it, especially in the second half”.

Liverpool bombarded Stoke in the second half with wave after wave of attacks but Stoke put up a strong resilient display in keeping the Reds out. Carragher concluded: “That’s the Premier League and that’s football, it’s Stoke’s day today, it’s a disappointing day but if we can play like that at Spurs hopefully we’ll get something”.

Carra worries over future.

Jamie Carragher has indicated that he has concerns about his future and can no longer take a starting place for granted.

Liverpool have signed promising young defender Sebastian Coates, and the club’s vice-captain admits he is looking over his shoulder at the next generation queuing up for his place.

Carragher speaking to The Times said: “Young players at the club say, ‘I have to be like Carra in training’ because they can see that I put in a shift in every session.”

The Reds star feels deep concerns over his age and added: “I am always looking to up my game because I feel that I still have something to prove. Even today some Liverpool fans are asking questions about my age and how long I will last.

The vice-captain who turns 34 in January, still has two years remaining on his contract but has hinted that he may call it a day if the club decline the opportunity to extend it.

Carragher added: “Life is not just about money. There are other things, important things that have a different kind of value. Anyone from Liverpool could tell you that.”.
