Suarez sad to see Gerrard leaving Liverpool

The Barcelona striker is gutted his former-team mate will depart Anfield for LA Galaxy in the summer as his current side prepare to take on PSG
Barcelona forward Luis Suarez has admitted that former team-mate Steven Gerrard's impending departure from Liverpool makes him "sad". 

Gerrard will depart Anfield and head to LA Galaxy in MLS at the end of the season, thus ending a 17-year playing career with his boyhood club.

The midfielder's last chance to sign off with a trophy disappeared with Sunday's 2-1 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Aston Villa and Suarez, who spent three-and-a-half years at Liverpool, was full of praise for his ex-colleague.

"I try to watch all the Liverpool games. They have really good players," he told reporters.

"It's sad when I hear Stevie is leaving because for me he's an amazing player, and when I was at Liverpool they knew my dream was to play for Barcelona."

Suarez was speaking ahead of Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg with Paris Saint-Germain at Camp Nou, with Barca leading 3-1 thanks in part to a pair of superb goals from the Uruguayan in the French capital.
