Luis Suarez returns to Liverpool to say goodbye
Liverpool: Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard bid an "emotional" farewell to his former teammate Luis Suarez yesterday as the striker made a return visit to the Reds' training ground.

Suarez, who left the Merseysiders to join Barcelona earlier this summer, certainly caused a few eyebrows to be raised when it emerged that he was back at the Melwood complex on transfer deadline day.
But he was there just to collect some belongings — as well as present a gift. A picture has appeared on midfielder Gerrard's Instagram account of him and the Uruguay frontman smiling and holding up a signed 'Suarez 9' Barcelona shirt.
The image was accompanied by a message reading: "He is back bearing gifts. Emotional saying goodbye to the main man this morning. Best wishes to a phenomenal player."
Another image later appeared on Suarez's Twitter account, showing him in a group pose with Gerrard and Liverpool defenders Glen Johnson and Jon Flanagan.
