Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler believes Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is on a par with Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi, reports BBC Sport. "Messi and Ronaldo are unbelievable players but in all honesty, I wouldn't be embarrassed to say Luis Suarez's name in the same breath as those two. His form has been phenomenal - right now Suarez is definitely on the same level," Fowler told Standard Sport.

"An extra three or four-year contract for Suarez shows that the club want to tie him down and aim towards getting in the top four.

"They've shown they're willing to stand by him and believe in him, and equally they're repaying him for his form this season, so I think it's a good decision."
