Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says the team’s success this season will depend on whether Luis Suarez stays or leaves.

Where the Uruguayan striker plays his football this season will have a major impact on the Reds’ fortunes, Gerrard told a press conference ahead of his testimonial match against Olympiacos tomorrow.

He said: “I don’t know what’s happening. I think the only person that knows what’s happening is probably Luis himself.

“I think he’s got a huge decision to make and as his team mate I’ve got to show him respect and give him space to make whatever decision he wants to make.

“But I think everyone in this room and everyone at the club knows what I want Luis Suarez to do. Everyone knows how highly I rate him and how much I want him to stay.
“What we can achieve this season basically depends on whether he stays or goes, I believe.”
