Liverpool boss confident of Suarez stay.Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers expects there to be speculation over Luis Suarez’s future this summer, but insists the star striker will not be sold, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Uruguayan has been in sensational form for the Reds this season, scoring 30 goals in all competitions for the club, though his campaign was cut short after he received a ten-match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic.
The 26-year-old has been a controversial character for some of his on-pitch antics, leading to rumours that he may want to escape from the British press and make a move abroad.
The likes of Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich are all admirers of his talents, but Rodgers does not believe Suarez will turn his back on the club after they have stuck with him through difficult times.
“Listen, every player has their price but there’s certainly no pressure for the club to sell him,” said the manager. “We’re trying to build that bit of quality so he’s not for sale.
“I don’t have any doubts there will be interest in him this summer, because he’s up there.
“I know we that as a club and me as a manager have supported him, told him when he’s been right and when he’s been wrong.
“We have supported him when he’s been in turmoil and when he’s had setbacks, when there’s been traumas over the last couple of years. He knows he did wrong.”
Suarez was a leading candidate for PFA Player of the Year this season, but narrowly missed out to Tottenham star Gareth Bale, though he has certainly established himself as one of the best players in the Premier League with his performances this year.
