Gerrard was resigned to losing last seasonâ€™s top scorer when he saw Suarezâ€™s headline-grabbing actions in Brazil.
â€śI thought he was going to stay, I thought weâ€™d have got another year out of him,â€ť said Gerrard.
â€śI was actually already on the floor when I saw the bite because we knew we were going out. It was a double blow, knowing youâ€™re going out of the World Cup and knowing youâ€™re going to lose your best player.
â€śI knew there was no way back for him then and I knew he was going to engineer a way out.â€ť
