Transfer flashback: Luis Suárez leaves Liverpool

Transfer flashback: Luis Suárez leaves Liverpool

In three and a half seasons at Liverpool, Luis Suárez cemented himself as one of the best strikers in the world. 

The Uruguayan was not only a focal member of Liverpool’s 2013/14 title chase, he was the main man. He was sensational that season earning the PFA Players’ Player of the Year, FWA Footballer of the Year, Premier League Player of the Season and Premier League Golden Boot accolades, as well as the European Golden Shoe for 31 league goals that season.

Inevitably, some of the biggest clubs were going to come after him, and after he was embroiled in another biting incident at the World Cup, it was time for Liverpool to let him go. He left Anfield for Barcelona in the summer of 2014 for £65m. This obviously disappointed a huge number of fans, as they were losing one of the best players that they had ever had.

They took to Twitter to show their disappointment, and this is what they had to say:

Since moving, the striker has simply gone up to another level at Barcelona. He was part of the historic MSN strike force alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar, whereby they swept everything up in front of them.

Suárez has won three La Liga titles, four Copa Del Reys and a Champions League title with the Catalan club, and has scored over 150 goals for them, including 59 in 53 games in the 2015/16 season.

He remains one of the best strikers in the world, and Liverpool fans will surely rue what might have been.
