Raheem Sterling would have been watching - what conclusions would he have drawn?
It's also old news that his move to Barcelona has been a success after a phenomenal season.
Indeed, it was a sign of what players can achieve after leaving the club. Just as Javier Mascherano, Xabi Alonso and more have also proved.
Raheem Sterling would have been watching. He will have seen that Suarez 'outgrew' Liverpool and the want-away winger may just have had his desire to leave Anfield strengthened. Psychologically, seeing the Uruguayan hit the net in Berlin will not have gone unnoticed by the youngster.
He *claims* he wants trophies and what better proof than his former team-mate going out there and shining on the biggest stage in club football? Liverpool's negotiating position will have been weakened, while the winger's poor performance for England on Sunday afternoon won't encourage anyone to pay more should the Reds be happy to sell him.
Of course, there is the small matter of Sterling not being anywhere near Suarez in terms of ability. But that hasn't stopped the 20-year-old in his quest to leave Liverpool so far, has it?
If both player and agent are to be believed, you'd think Suarez was the next Sterling...
