Suarez had no respect for anyone in Liverpool training

Suarez completed a £23 million ($29m) move to Anfield from Ajax in January 2011, and went on to score 82 goals in 133 appearances in the famous red shirt.

The Uruguayan quickly became a cult hero among Liverpool supporters for his fierce determination and penchant for magical moments in the final third, and he inspired a Premier League title bid in his final season on Merseyside.

The Reds legend was full of praise for his former team-mate at Anfield and says the club's Premier League title win has helped "bury a few demons"

Steven Gerrard says Luis Suarez had "no respect for anyone" during training sessions at Liverpool, and that he knew "straight away" he would be a "top player" for the club.

Suarez made his way to Barcelona after the Reds were narrowly beaten to the top-flight crown by Manchester City, but he is still fondly remembered by fans and former Anfield team-mates to this day.

Gerrard recalls being blown away by the 33-year-old's fearless attitude in training upon his arrival in England, and says it was clear to see that he was capable of making a big impact in the Premier League.

When asked to name the best player he played with, the Liverpool legend told the  BBC's Match of the Day Top 10 podcast: “A lot of strikers that we used to sign did have respect for the likes of Jamie Carragher and other names around the squad but he (Luis Suarez) had no respect for anyone in training, in a good way.

"You knew straight away in days rather than weeks that he was going to be a top player for Liverpool.”

Gerrard, who was a runner-up with the Reds in the Premier League on three occasions, has been delighted to see Jurgen Klopp deliver a long-awaited trophy in 2019-20 while watching on as a "fan" during his second year in charge at Rangers.

"It was fantastic for everyone connected to the club but it was mixed emotions in many ways because of my own experiences, being a fan and ex-player and a lot of my family are Liverpool fans as well.

"To be honest with you, I’m still on a really big high watching all of the TV coverage and seeing all of the emotions flying about.”
