On Saturday morning, Liverpool’s official website confirmed what some Reds fans had feared for quite a while now – the extremely talented Suso had left the club for AC Milan.
The 21-year-old was coming to the end of his current contract at Anfield, but such is his ability that a new deal would have been no surprise, even at this late stage.
Alas it was not to be, with the Spaniard swapping the Premier League for Serie A, heading to an AC Milan side where he is likely to get plenty more game-time than he has managed at Liverpool in recent seasons.
A serious injury was partly to blame for that, but the simple fact is Suso’s record of 21 first-team appearances for the Reds was not enough for someone so talented, and now is the time for him to seize this next chance and show Liverpool what they are missing and Milan what they signed on the cheap.
After the news, we took to Twitter to see what Liverpool fans thought of Suso’s departure and you can read a selection of what we found below:

Let down by manager after manager to make way for their own preferred average player #Suso— Darlington (@Kabu_Darlington) January 17, 2015
Goodbye Suso. Such a promising player. But not given enough chance. Hope you'll show your potential elsewhere.— Hendo Van Doe (@LFCDoe) January 17, 2015
