Leboeuf: SAS Remind Me of Ronaldo & Rivaldo

Former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf has hailed the SAS partnership, comparing the Liverpool duo to Brazilian pair Ronaldo and Rivaldo.

Ahead of Chelsea’s visit to Anfield in what would potentially be a title-deciding match, the 1998 FIFA World Cup winner believed that Liverpool strikers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge are almost unplayable.

“I think it has surprised everyone that Suarez and Sturridge can work so well together,” Leboeuf told FourFourTwo.

“It is very rare nowadays to find two players who are happy playing together, sharing the [goal-scoring] burden and not being pushed by their egos.

“I cannot think of any [other strike partnership that is as good as them at the moment], but I remember playing against Ronaldo and Rivaldo at the 1998 FIFA World Cup Final and both of them were absolutely fantastic."

This season, Suarez and Sturridge have scored a combined total of 50 league goals – a whopping 52 per cent of Liverpool's total league goals – as the Reds bid to win their first league title for 24 years.

With three games remaining, Brendan Rodgers’ side hold a five-point lead over Chelsea and will welcome their nearest title challengers to Anfield on Sunday.
