Former Liverpool football chief Damien Comolli feels they should keep hold of Luis Suarez.

Suarez is expected to be sold to Barcelona after his latest biting controversy.

Comolli, who was instrumental in the £25m deal to sign Suarez in January 2011, told BBC Radio 5 live: "Who do you replace him with? There is nobody like him around. If there was, Real Madrid and Barcelona would go after them and not Suarez."

Former Tottenham and Saint-Etienne sporting director Comolli also warned that rival clubs could use Suarez's ban to negotiate a cut-price deal.

He said: "If there was a buying club and they felt Liverpool would sell, they will take advantage and try to drive the price down."
