Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard has named Uruguayan Luis Suarez as the best player he ever played with at Liverpool.


Gerrard was the captain at Liverpool for many seasons and now the manager at Aston Villa.


The former England captain was fielding questions from Gary Neville on The Overlap.


He was asked to settle the debate on who was the better out of Suarez and Fernando Torres.


And Gerrard, said: “I get asked this question all the time. They’re both phenomenal but I’d say Suarez just because he had everything.


“I played with some top players – Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano, Torres – but Suarez was just different. No matter who you were playing you just had a feeling that he was going to win you the game, every game.”


The Uruguay International scored 82 goals in 133 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool, having joined from Ajax in January 2011.


“Within the first session, second session it was almost like he trained the way he played,” Gerrard added.


“I remember walking off one of the main sessions that we’ve done with Carra [Jamie Carragher] and me and Carra are like ‘oh my god this fella’s got bundles, plenty’. I remember him saying to me, ‘I don’t want to play against him every day,’ he was that intense in training.


“He could embarrass you, even with stuff that I don’t even think he knew he was doing. He was a ricochet merchant, he’d run over you, he’d dominate you, he’d bully you.”
