Liverpool legend Aldo already won over by Suarez exploits

Liverpool icon John Aldridge has already been won over by Luis Suarez.

While Aldridge admits it was frustrating to drop points against Wigan, he was left delighted by the dynamic display of Suarez.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "Saturday was a disappointing result for Liverpool, but there was one shining light in the gloom - Luis Suarez.

"We knew he was good, but he surpassed all our expectations with a performance that was full of life and endeavour.

"With his goal 16 minutes after coming on as a substitute against Stoke and his energetic showing against Wigan, things look great for the future."

He added: "Twice on Saturday, the former Ajax man was within a whisker of finding the net.

"The first was all his own work, made out of nothing. The 'keeper Al Habsi had no chance and seeing Suarez's effort hit the post was so unfortunate.

"When he got the ball he had loads to do, but a drop of the shoulder was the kind of magic we've been lacking to open teams up.

"In the second half, it was a surprise to see him step up and demand to take the free-kick as we've got people like Aurelio who can strike them well.

"But it was soon apparent why he wanted it, as he struck it like a true specialist, dipping it over the wall with the keeper stranded.

"Suarez looks like a typical Liverpool player.
