Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes Luis Suarez was determined to engineer a move to Barcelona before the World Cup.

Gerrard was resigned to losing last season’s top scorer when he saw Suarez’s headline-grabbing actions in Brazil.

“I thought he was going to stay, I thought we’d have got another year out of him,” said Gerrard.

“I was actually already on the floor when I saw the bite because we knew we were going out. It was a double blow, knowing you’re going out of the World Cup and knowing you’re going to lose your best player.

“I knew there was no way back for him then and I knew he was going to engineer a way out.”
