London - Barcelona striker Luis Suarez said goodbye to his former Liverpool team-mates during a visit to the club's Melwood training base on Monday, captain Steven Gerrard 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 later posted a picture on Twitter showing him alongside Gerrard and Liverpool full-backs Glen Johnson and Jon Flanagan.

He wrote: "Today I could say goodbye to some friends, it was exciting to remember the good moments that we lived together. Thank you for all the joy you gave me!!!!! Great picture with @glen_johnson, @jon_flan93 and Steven Gerrard!!!!"

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.

The 27-year-old Uruguay striker spent three 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.
