Dean Saunders has compared Luis Suarez to a ‘Sunday League player with a round of milk’ during the World Cup draw between Uruguay and South Korea.
The former Liverpool and Barcelona star is taking part in what is expected to be his last World Cup and started in Uruguay’s 0-0 draw against South Korea in Group H.
The game was desperate for an attacking quality moment, but unfortunately Suarez was not the man to provide such a moment.
The 35-year-old, who turns 36 in January, looked a long way off the pace and was substituted on the hour mark, leading to Saunders’ colorful comparison.
Speaking on talkSPORT comments, Alex Crook said: ‘He doesn’t look fit’
And former Liverpool and Wales striker Saunders replied: “He looks like, you know, when you play for a Sunday League team and the boy who hasn’t played for you in two years old, has a milk tower and just shows up with training and his kit just about fits him, he looks a bit like this.
Saunders spoke more about Suarez at half-time during the game, saying: “Suarez was standing in the middle of the pitch between the two centre-backs and actually keeping their centre-backs together. He helps them!
“He needs to start doing some running from the inside out.

“Looking at him now, Suarez doesn’t look like the player he used to be but don’t turn your back on him for a second because he will always have that instinct, which he always had.
“I imagine Suarez running down the canal and nutmeging someone on the signing. That’s how I see him, razor sharp, but he’s nowhere near the ball today. today.
He then added: “Cavani would be more mobile than Suarez, Suarez looks like he plays with a piano on his back.”
