Jamie Carragher: Luis Suarez is too good for Liverpool (and Arsenal)
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher says the club’s wantaway star Luis Suarez is too good for them.
Carra, Suarez’s team-mate until his retirement at the end of last season, claims that the 26-year-old striker is one of the best players in the world, while his former team can no longer claim to be one of the best teams in the world.
Writing in the Daily Mail, Carragher said: “Luis Suarez is too good for Liverpool. He is one of the top players in the world, whereas Liverpool were only the seventh best team in England last season.
“His talents are greater than the stage on which he plays. Not only does he deserve to play in the Champions League, he should be winning it.”
The silver-lining for Reds is that Carra also says that Suarez is too good for Arsenal.
He wrote: “Luis Suarez is also too good for Arsenal. In recent years, they haven’t challenged for trophies; they have not made an impact in the Champions League and they are no closer to winning the Premier League.”
The former England international suggests Suarez belongs at Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich and would “staunchly defend” his decision to join any of those teams.
Unfortunately for all concerned, only Arsenal have bid so far.
