Jordan Henderson learned a lot from former Reds Luis Suarez.
The Uruguayan international scored 82 goals in 133 appearances in his three-year spell at Anfield before making a permanent move to Barcelona in 2014.
He returns to Anfield for the Champions League clash on Wednesday who has played a big role in Henderson’s playing career.
Suarez’s time at Anfield was filled with a few controversies starting from racially abusing Patrice Evra and biting Branislav Ivanovic.
“When Luis was here he was phenomenal for a number of years, he was outstanding,” said Henderson. “We all know he’s a top player for a long time, who produced so many good moments at Liverpool.
“The fans know that and will appreciate what he did at this football club – I don’t think Luis will be too bothered – so maybe not during the game but it would be nice after the game for him to get a nice reception from the crowd.
“He helped me massively and made me grow in confidence as a player and I had a good relationship with him on the pitch but also off the pitch as well.”
