Brendan Rodgers believes Barcelona’s Luis Suarez is the biggest threat his Celtic side will face on Tuesday night, calling the forward the best player in the world. Skysports reports.
Rodgers worked with the 29-year-old at Liverpool and paid tribute to the Uruguayan’s personality as well as his ability.
“First of all, when you speak about Luis Suarez, you have to speak about the man,” said Rodgers.
“Luis Suarez is one of the most beautiful men you could come across. He’s a very humble guy who works tirelessly at his profession. He is a super-professional, a family man who gives everything for his life as a footballer and his family.
“I had the pleasure of working with him for two years and he was incredible and as a footballer, he is the best in the world.
“The biggest compliment you can give Luis is that he came to an already world-class team and he made them even better.”
