Where are They Now? Liverpool’s Nine Luis Suarez Replacements From 2014

Luis Suarez is considered one of the best Liverpool strikers of all time-so replacing him is always difficult. After Suarez was sold to Barcelona, ​​Liverpool reinvested the money and signed not one but nine new players in the summer of 2014. We understand the performance of these nine players in the past seven years.

9. Rickie Lambert

Lambert was released by Liverpool at the age of 15, but 17 years after establishing his position in Southampton, he returned to the fairytale Boyhood club. The striker failed to make a significant impact, staying at Anfield for only one year, scoring 3 goals in 36 games in the 2014-15 season.

it's great, Lambert told Bristol Live in May 2020. Of course I am much more professional. It was pretty good at first, I gave it a few points and I was very happy. But I can say that all the players were shocked by the loss to Luis Suarez, and their game revolved around him. I will never replace someone like that, right? It was very hard to follow him up, very hard.

8. Adam Lallana

After an excellent season in Southampton, Lallana signed a contract of 25 million pounds. In the 2013-14 season of the Premier League in 38 games, nine goals and eight assists won Lallana’s contract. This midfielder was the basis of Jurgen Klopp's leadership in Anfield's revival, but due to untimely injuries, he eventually caused casualties. In 2019-20, he won the Premier League championship medal , Then join Brighton for free to find regular first-line football.

7. Emre Can

You can join Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen and become a regular season player. playing 166 times in four seasons. After allowing his contract to expire, he transferred to Juventus for free in 2018 and ended his first season in Turin as a Serie A champion. Despite reports of Manchester United’s interest, the midfielder fell out of favor with the support of Maurizio Sarri and joined Dortmund in 2020.

6. Lazar Markovic

Markovic is considered one of the brightest young talents in Europe, but failed to prove that his price tag of 20 million is correct. He scored in 34 games of the Red Army 3 goals were scored. After obtaining loans from Fenerbahce, Sporting Lisbon, Hull City and Anderlecht, he reached a permanent agreement with Fulham in January 2019.

5. Dejan Lovren

In the summer of 2014, Liverpool took Southampton as his own personal shopping center and spent £20 million to purchase Lovren, reuniting him with Lambert and Lallana. Long enough to win the favor of Liverpool fans.

He joined Zenit Saint Petersburg in 2020 for $10.9 million, enjoying the start of his dreams at the new club and winning the Russian Super Cup on his debut. When Lovren told Zenit's official website in January 2021, I never regretted anything. This is a feeling I never allow. I decided to leave Liverpool. Until the end, I was not happy because I did not participate in the competition. I decided to come here very happy, I think they miss me more than I do. Jurgen Klopp knows that we chat sometimes, he once wrote to me, he missed me. I did not answer.

4. Divock Origi

After Lallana and Lovren left Liverpool in 2020, Origi is now the last of the nine players to join Liverpool in 2014. The striker's arrival at Anfield is a hot prospect, but his time at the club has passed after disastrous loans in Lille and Wolfsburg.

Since then he has turned to become a fanatical hero of Liverpool, scoring an unforgettable goal against Everton, Barcelona and then against Tottenham in the 2019 Champions League final.

3. Alberto Moreno

Moreno signed from Sevilla for 12 million euros. He is considered one of Spain’s most promising left-backs. With his amazing solo effort against Tottenham Hotspur.

Although his offensive ability is obvious, he has struggled defensively during his five years at the club and made a series of high-profile mistakes. The 28-year-old eventually fell behind Andy Robertson in the pecking order and joined Villarreal when his contract with Liverpool expired in 2019.

2. Mario Balotelli

After missing on Alexis Sanchez, Liverpool gambled and decided to sign Balotelli from AC Milan for 16m euros. Considering that he scored 4 goals in 28 appearances in all games before joining Nice for a free transfer, it is safe to say that this is not worth the risk.

Rogers said in 2016 that what we want and what we need is a player who can really develop in this field. This is not just the shooter we are after. I think Mario is a person who won't work for us but by the end of the summer, we are trying to find someone who can play the role we want. I think the ownership team thinks this might be a player I can train.

They think he might be £50 million players, and we can get it for 16 million. Therefore, if the owner wants you to follow that route and there is no other option, you can certainly give it a try. After three years in France, he returned to Italy with his hometown of Brescia

1. Javier Manquillo

Manquillo signed a two-year Atletico Madrid loan agreement with Liverpool, but the move was terminated in 2015 after he played only 10 Premier League matches, and was subsequently transported to Marseille and Sunderland before signing The permanent contract reached a deal with Newcastle United in 2017.
