Steven Gerrard says there’s lots more to come from new Liverpool striker Luis Suarez once he adapts fully to the pace of the Premier League.
Suarez has already shown moments of genius since completing his £23million move from Ajax, scoring on his debut against Stoke City and turning brilliantly to set up Glen Johnson’s goal in Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham.
But Gerrard says these are early days for Suarez and the 24-year-old will show his sheer genius once he feels comfortable in English football.
The Reds skipper said, “Already we can see what a good player Luis is. He’s got good pace and awareness and he’s settled in very quickly.
“He’s a fighter too and the type of character he is means he’s going to work really hard for the team.’
“We’ve all been delighted with his first few performances. Hopefully there is even more to come from him too.
“I expect him to be even better when he adjusts to the speed of football in this country.
“He hadn’t played many games in the weeks before he moved here so he’s still getting his match fitness. When he gets that, he will be very difficult to stop.”
