Jamie Carragher Names The Liverpool And England Stars Who Impressed Him The Most During His Career
Carragher and Suarez were teammates at Liverpool between 2010-2014 with the Uruguayan scoring 82 goals before sealing a transfer to Barcelona.
And the former defender has revealed that the prolific striker is one of the two Liverpool players that really stood out.
"Yes, during my time at Liverpool there are two players that really stand out, I would say - Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez," he told World Football Index.
"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, who was capped 38 times by England, named former Manchester United stars Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand as the players that stood out at international level.
He added: "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.
"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."
