Liverpool: 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.
