In an interview with Liverpoolfc.tv, the man known to most Liverpool fans simply as God, spoke of his admiration for the current number 7 and admitted that he would have loved the chance to play alongside him.
“For me as a goalscoring player, you always want players around you who can create. In the games I’ve seen this season, Luis has created a lot of chances. As a player, I would thrive on playing with someone like him. For goalscorers, those type of players are great to play with.”
When asked about the impact that the Uruguayan forward has made since his arrival at Anfield in January 2011, Fowler remarked:
“Luis has been fantastic since he joined the club – his all-round game has been outstanding. He’s been a breath of fresh air and caused defences all sorts of problems. He can be very satisfied with how he’s played overall this season.”
The Liverpool great has also been impressed by the blossoming partnership between Suarez and and Andy Carroll, saying:
“I think they’ve been tremendous in the last few games and they’ve worked well together,they have looked a real threat. They were brilliant in the semi-final against Everton, both of them scored and I don’t think you could have scripted that any better. It was a fantastic game for the two of them. They’ve scored a few goals together as a partnership recently and let’s hope as supporters they can continue to go on and on.”

Fowler, who scored 128 goals in 266 games in two spells in a Red shirt, believes that every remaining game is vital, and that every player will be desperate to impress Kenny Dalglish before the F.A. Cup final on May 5th.
“At the start of the season, we all wanted to finish as high up in the league as possible and it’s still important we go into every league game from now until the end of the season, try and get as many points as possible and finish as high as we can. I know it’s a bit of a cliché in football, but every game is vitally important now, especially with the Cup final coming up. Players will want to play well and impress to try and get a place in the Cup final.”
