Liverpool supporters have their say on the social networking site on the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.

After weeks of speculation, it has finally been confirmed that Luis Suarez will leave Liverpool for Barcelona.

The 27-year-old's future at Anfield had been cast into doubt since his unsavoury behaviour at the ongoing 2014 World Cup finals, and it has now been made clear that he will not play for the Reds anymore.

Suarez will travel to Barcelona next week and will sign a five-year contract after passing a medical. The transfer fee that the Spanish giants had to pay Liverpool for the former Nacional star has not been declared.

The star striker joined Liverpool from Ajax in January 2011 and quickly established himself as a key player for the club.

Last season, Suarez took his game to a whole new level and was without doubt the best player for Liverpool as they came within just two points of winning the Premier League title.

However, Suarez’s three-and-a-half years at Liverpool were peppered with controversies. He was found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra during a Premier League match in October 2011, and in April 2013 he bit Branislav Ivanovic of Chelsea.

On both occasions, Liverpool stood by him, but it appears that his bite on Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay’s match against Italy in Brazil finally forced the Merseyside outfit to sell him.

Following the announcement of Suarez’s exit on Friday, Liverpool fans took to social networking site Twitter to give their opinion on the matter. Below is a selection of their tweets.
