Steven Gerrard has talked about former teammate Luis Suarez‘s move to Barcelona, saying he told him not to move to Arsenal.
“His dream from the first day he came was to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona,” the former England captain told The Telegraph.
“Last summer when he was out in the cold and training on his own that’s the conversation I had with him. I said: ‘Don’t go to Arsenal’.
“I would have been really sad and disappointed to see Luis go to Arsenal. With all due respect to them, I said to him that he was too good for Arsenal.”
Suarez scored 31 goals in all competitions last season to help Liverpool back into the UEFA Champions League, and was named player of the year by the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) and Football Writers’ Association (FWA).
