Carragher hails "fantastic" Suarez
Liverpool vice-captain Jamie Carragher insists he would not swap striker Luis Suarez for any other player in England.
The Uruguay international has expressed his desire to extend his stay at Anfield despite a testing first full season and Carragher believes it is "vitally important" to keep hold of the 25-year-old. Suarez scored Liverpool's all-important equaliser in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final victory over Everton - his 14th goal of the campaign - in an improved second-half performance. And while his finishing has not been as prolific as he may have liked Suarez is still the club's leading scorer this season and his threat to defences has remained undiminished. "I thought he was brilliant. Our best player. I wouldn't swap him for anyone in the league," said Carragher. "He is a fantastic player and I'm delighted we've got him and hopefully he will take that forward into the cup final. It is vitally important (Liverpool keep Suarez). I see no reason why he would want to leave. He is playing well so hopefully he will sign a new contract, which he is expecting to do."
