I do love statements like these – “He showed that he’s a world-class player. At the moment I wouldn’t swap Luis for anyone in the world.”
That statement came from Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard when talking to the press for the FA Cup final against Chelsea. I have to admit that whenever a player says that I laugh as it is bull! Unless you play for Real Madrid or Barcelona and you are not Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. If Gerrard could swap Suarez for either of those he would, and he knows he would. Let’s face it Suarez would happily be swapped for van Persie or Sergio Agüero.
I know it is sentiment and who knows maybe Stevie wouldn’t swap Suarez for Messi, but he would be checked in to a psych ward straight away!
