Luis Suarez had a phenomenal run with Liverpool last season, leading the Barclays Premier League with 31 goals. In his autobiography Luis Suarez, My Story: Crossing the Line, the FC Barcelona signing credits much of his success to Reds Captain Steven Gerrard, who he says encouraged him to reject a move to Arsenal for £40 million.

I wonder what Liverpool fans think of him actually encouraging our biggest star to leave to one of 'Europe's elite'? Shall we not keep our best players? We used to be on that list!
He was banned for four months, but well Liverpool were without Sturridge due to injury. Balotelli has been horrible.Suarez was not happy with English media after the world cup.
I like how Liverpool spun it so that they had no choice but to sell him, if they had wanted to keep him they would have backed him like they had done multiple times before. There were rumours before the tournament had even started that he was heading to Barcelona, the bite made selling him a lot easier as far as their fans were concerned.
