Jamie Carragher names Liverpool teammate who “really stood out” along with Steven Gerrard

Jamie Carragher has named Barcelona striker Luis Suarez as the former Liverpool teammate who impressed him the most along with Steven Gerrard.

Suarez spent four seasons at Anfield between 2010-2014, scoring 82 goals in 133 appearances in all competitions, and he gained a reputation as one of the best forwards in the world before his move to La Liga.

Speaking in an interview with World Football Index, Carragher also identified two Spanish players who he particularly enjoyed playing alongside.

“Yes, during my time at Liverpool there are two players that really stand out, I would say – Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez,” Carragher said.



Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez formed a formidable partnership at Liverpool

“If you look what Luis Suarez has gone on to do for Barcelona, and also his country of Uruguay, helping them to win a Copa America and get to the semi-final of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, it shows how far he took such a small country.

“Fernando Torres was such a brilliant striker and I played with some great strikers. And Xabi Alonso, if you look at what he went on to do with Spain. I played with some great players.”

Carragher also won 38 caps for England, appearing at three major tournaments for the Three Lions, and he begrudgingly showed his admiration for some former Manchester United stars.

“At international level it is difficult to say because I played with such great players for England and a lot of them were Manchester United players (unfortunately!) such as Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand,” Carragher continued.



Xabi Alonso was also a crucial player for Liverpool

“Frank Lampard and John Terry were also very good for England, and players that were labelled a ‘Golden Generation’, and we accept that, but you must also remember that there were many special players involved in the squads of our international opponents.

“There were some top England players around at that time and I believe the quality is better than the current England squad now, but this current England squad reached the semi-final of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and that is something an excellent generation of England players could not quite achieve.”
