I’ll never be as good as Kenny Dalglish and Steven Gerrard


Luis Suarez claims Kenny Dalglish will always be No 1 at Liverpool.

Suarez has been compared to Dalglish because of his breathtaking ability and he has bagged an incredible 23 goals in 21 league games.

Veteran Kopites claim he is the most gifted player to wear the famous red shirt since Dalglish.

Suarez shies away from such talk and he says he will always be behind Dalglish and skipper Steven Gerrard.

“No, no, I’m not at that level,” he told the Liverpool Echo in an exclusive interview.

“Kenny is No 1. When he was a player he was just unbelievable. I’ve watched the videos of him.

“Stevie for me is the best player we have here. He has achieved so much.

“He’s our captain and a great leader. In the dressing room he never thinks he’s better than anyone else. For me he’s been one of the best player in the world for a lot of years.

“I think Liverpool have a long history with many great players. I hope one day to be up there with those great players. I’ll try my best to write some history here.”

Just as Dalglish enjoyed a prolific partnership with Ian Rush in the 1980s, Suarez has formed a lethal pairing with Daniel Sturridge.

The duo have scored 42 goals between them and Suarez says they have a great understanding.

“I enjoy playing with Daniel and there is a good relationship between us,” he said.

“I think we both love scoring goals. It’s important when you have two or three players like that as it gives more confidence for the team.

“Daniel was scoring goals when I couldn’t play at the start of the season and then when Daniel was out injured I was able to score a lot of goals. It’s important for the team not to be relying on one player.”
