Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher reckons there were times last season when Luis Suarez bullied strike partner Daniel Sturridge during matches, reports the Daily Star.

The Uruguayan recently completed a £75million move to Barcelona, and Carragher believes his move to Spain will allow Sturridge to develop into the main man at Anfield.

The pair formed the most feared strike partnership in the Premier League last season, but Carragher says there were moments when he felt sorry for Sturridge.

Carragher said on The Anfield Wrap podcast: “I don’t think he [Sturridge] gets enough credit, I’ve mentioned it before.

“He’s not Suarez, we know that.

“I remember times last season when I was in the Main Stand in the Everton game he and Suárez were going hammer and tongs at each other, they were still arguing at the halfway line and the manager brought Sturridge off.

“I’d have done the other one. I felt at times that Suarez bullied him a little bit.

“I know with strikers there’s sometimes a little bit of a jealousy thing there, if someone’s scoring.

“I felt for him at times. I think he got the rough end of the stick at times with him and Suarez.

“I’m not saying they never got on, but they both wanted to be the main man scoring. Now there’s no doubt he’s the man.”

      Sturridge is a selfish player and Suarez was right if he bullied him.

      Daniel is not a great player and never will be one.

      He lacks courage against strong defenders…and the penalty kick he missed proves what i say.

    In my own opinion, sturidge is a player who’l never want to learn, he doesn’t have the experience to score against big opposition or any srong defense, suarez is more of a better team and individual player than sturidge, instead of him to learn from him, he ended up been selfish. Am afraid if he continue like that he’l never become great in liverpool. All those goals he scored last term was with the help of suarez, now that suarez is away let see wat he has got
