London - Barcelona striker Luis Suarez said goodbye to his former Liverpool team-mate Steven Gerrard during a visit to the club's Melwood training base on Monday, the former England captain revealed.
Gerrard published a photograph on his Instagram account of Suarez handing him a signed 'SUAREZ 9' Barcelona shirt, accompanied by the message: "He is back bearing gifts.
"Emotional saying goodbye to the main man this morning. Best wishes to a phenomenal player."
Suarez had returned to Liverpool's training ground to collect some personal belongings following his move to Barcelona for a reported fee of 75 million ($125 million, 95 million euros).
The 27-year-old Uruguay striker spent two and a half seasons with Gerrard at Anfield, scoring 69 league goals, but left in July after being banned by FIFA for four months for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.
