Ex-Man Utd star Beckham hails Liverpool's 'amazing' Suarez

LA Galaxy's David Beckham has heaped praise on Liverpool striker Luis Suarez following his performance yesterday.

The Uruguayan scored an equaliser in the Reds' 1-1 draw with Newcastle United when he controlled a long pass on his shoulder before rounding Tim Krul and the brilliance of the goal was not lost on former Manchester United midfielder Beckham.

"It was exceptional, to score a goal like that. The way he brought the ball down, everything about it was amazing. It was amazing to watch it," he told reporters.

"I'm a Manchester United fan, and I don't like to say that about Liverpool players, but all jokes aside his first touch was incredible, his second touch was even better and it was an amazing finish.

"He's a great player, he's capable of doing those things week in and week out."
