He slid in studs up, not intended for a tackle but rather a completion, and without a second's delay celebrated, orbiting around the rear of Liverpool's objective, his arms outstretched, smiling.

He had scored 82 objectives in 133 games for them, won a cup with them, been shielded through prejudice and gnawing outrages by them, and procured their reverence as one of their most noteworthy ever players.

"He conflicted with them, he battled with them, he raised his elbows and I thought, 'This isn't what you ordinarily find in preparing'," Gerrard said.

"Typically, you see a great deal of regard, however Luis would pulverize anybody.

It was that equivalent drive and rebellion that made Suarez join Atletico Madrid subsequent to being pushed off by Barcelona.

Suarez told Diario Sport this month he was "dealt with like he was 15" by Ronald Koeman and the club president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, "released that he was harming the changing area".

Suarez had not partaken in his best season for Barca and there was a contention to say his style was denying the group of a more versatile, free-streaming assault. However, he needed to show he actually had a place with the world class and needed to show Barcelona close up.

He scored 21 objectives in 38 games for Atletico last term and the one objective that won them the title.

Diego Simeone called it "the Suarez Zone", an inclination to convey when it makes a difference most, and before the worldwide break, there he was once more, scoring in 2-0 win over Barcelona.

He celebrated by making a telephone motion toward Koeman, apparently concerning their 40-second farewell call.

It was likewise his fourth objective in as many games for Atletico, facilitating worries that a 34-year-old with a hurting knee probably won't consume so brilliantly in his subsequent season.

Be that as it may, Suarez is at his best when insubordinate, with an adversary to refute and a second to seize. Liverpool recall it well.
