Gerrard was resigned to losing last seasonâs top scorer when he saw Suarezâs headline-grabbing actions in Brazil.
âI thought he was going to stay, I thought weâd have got another year out of him,â said Gerrard.
âI was actually already on the floor when I saw the bite because we knew we were going out. It was a double blow, knowing youâre going out of the World Cup and knowing youâre going to lose your best player.
âI knew there was no way back for him then and I knew he was going to engineer a way out.â
