Keegan believes Luis Suarez’s best is yet to come
The Uruguayan striker has enjoyed an excellent goal scoring season so far, already surpassing his 17 goal tally in all competitions for the whole of the last campaign, after scoring twice in his sides 3-0 victory over Sunderland on Wednesday.
However Anfield legend Kevin Keegan believes that the 25-year-old has the potential to get even better as he continues to mature as a player, likening his progress to that of club icon Kenny Dalglish at a similar age.
“Suarez is still only 25, two years younger than when Kenny Dalglish joined the club,” said Keegan.
“And so, to put it in football parlance, Suarez has not reached his peak yet.”
“Most players peak at 27 and what he will learn in the next three years is the art of goal-scoring and he will become more clinical.”
“Both myself and Kenny left Liverpool as better goalscorers.”
Suarez has often had to plough a bit of a lone furrow up front for Brendan Rodgers side this season, scoring 15 of his sides 34 league goals so far while also providing assists for five of the other goals.
Rodgers has moved quickly in the winter window to bring in support for the Uruguayan in the shape of Daniel Sturridge, while hoping Suarez can continue his fantastic form from the first half of the season.
