Muhren questions if Ajax striker Suarez good enough for Man Utd

Former Manchester United star Arnold Muhren has questioned whether Ajax striker Luis Suarez could make it at Old Trafford.

The Uruguay international is a target for United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

But former United midfielder Muhren told the Manchester Evening News: "Unlike (Ruud) Van Nistelrooy there is a question mark for me over Suarez.

"There is no doubt that Suarez is a great goalscorer in the Dutch League. He's proved it. But I am not sure he can score the same amount of goals outside of Holland.

"Scoring goals is very, very important for him. That's his mind set and for an attacker that's a great mentality to have.

"But it depends on what teams want from their forward. Luis isn't a combination player. He isn't a one touch player. When he gets the ball his sole thought is to beat a man and try and score.

"If that is want you want then he is worth looking at. I am sure a lot of clubs like United will be taking a very serious look at him in South Africa.

"If he has a good World Cup and scores goals on that stage then he could convince a few he is worth buying."
