Gerrard: Suarez Can Become A Kop Legend & Win Liverpool Trophies

By on September 13, 2011

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes striker Luis Suarez has what it takes to become an all-time great at Anfield.

The South American has been a revelation since his £24million switch from Ajax last January. Asked whether Suarez could become an all-time Reds great, Gerrard told the club’s official website:

“I don’t see why not. 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.

“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.”

The England ace believes Suarez’ appetite for the game is like a kid in the street and that he can guide Liverpool to some trophies.

“He’s a very enthusiastic footballer and very intelligent. He’s like a kid in the street and he can’t wait to get out for training and games,” added Gerrard.

“Alongside Dirk (Kuyt) of late, they’ve been like two Duracell bunnies. They just don’t stop and for defenders that must be a nightmare, knowing when you control the ball those two will be chasing.

“It’s fantastic to have him and hopefully he can continue his form until the end of the season. If he does, it will give us a much better chance of getting some silverware.”
