But former Newcastle midfielder Dietmar Hamann feels Liverpool will be better off in the long term without Luis Suarez, a player he believes "can't be trusted".
Dietmar Hamann: "I think Liverpool have bought well.
"I have always been very critical of Suarez's antics.
"In footballing terms, he is a big loss, but somebody else will score the goals and I think, long-term, they will be better off without him than with him.
"I'd rather have the six or seven players they have now than Suarez, because at the end of the day, if you want to win things, you need people you can trust, and he can't be trusted.
"If he does something stupid again, he could be out for years, or for good.
"Yes, he has been great, there is no doubt about it. But what could have been if he had not missed all the games he did when he was here? Maybe the team would have been in the Champions League a while ago.
"All he has to show from his time at Liverpool is a League Cup winner's medal (from 2011/12). He is not leaving a team that was ruling the Premier League or Europe during that the last few years.
"He is a player who scored goals, but at the end of the day they only got into the Champions League with him last season."
