Liverpool fans reacted with amusement on Twitter after former player Suso was victorious in a clash for AC Milan against Juventus and their left-back Patrice Evra.
The 23-year-old ex-Red started for AC Milan as they defeated Juventus on penalties to win the Italian Super Cup and claim silverware for the first time since 2011.
Suso was part of Liverpool’s academy between 2010 and 2015 and made a handful of first team appearances before leaving in January to join AC Milan.
Since moving to Italy, Suso has grown to become one of AC Milan’s most important players and he is a regular starter in midfield, notching up 17 games, providing six assists and scoring five goals in Serie A already this season.
On Friday evening, he was pitted up against former Manchester United star Evra on the wing and Suso produced an excellent display, grabbing a crucial assist, which pleased Liverpool fans.
Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:
so happy for suso maen :'-(

@MelwoodDaily Always loved Suso, but as he had Coutinho as one of his obstacles to play in his best pos it was right to move on

Suso has proven to be a brilliant signing by AC Milan. Every club makes mistakes.

Evra is not well-liked by Merseysiders because aside from his affiliation with arch rivals United, he caused a stir in 2011 when he was involved in a bust-up with Luis Suarez, who was found guilt of racial abuse against Evra.
The striker was subsequently banned for eight games and Liverpool fans were unhappy about losing their star player.
Suso made his Liverpool debut in September 2012 and went on to make 21 appearances, scoring his debut goal in the Capital One Cup victory against Middlesbrough in 2014.
