Luis Suarez Is Loving Life At Liverpool, Claims Boss Brendan Rodgers

Reds boss says star striker is “very happy” at Liverpool.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is confident that Luis Suarez will stay at Anfield for many more years.

Suarez was the standout star of Liverpool’s season, scoring 31 goals in 33 Premier League games.

As a result, he won player of the year awards from Barclays, the Professional Footballers’ Association, the Football Writers’ Association, the Football Supporters’ Federation and CaughtOffside.

Rodgers insists that the Uruguayan, who tried and failed to manufacture a move to Arsenal last summer, is very happy on Merseyside.

“The last conversation I had with Luis, we spoke a lot and I know he is very happy here,” Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.

“He has had a marvellous season. He has picked up all the awards – ones that were very important to him from his peers.

“He’s contributed massively to our success this season and he is happy in the Premier League.

“He has turned a corner in terms of how he’s perceived in England.

“Of course in football you can’t promise anything, but I am confident Luis will be a big part of the future here.”

Suarez signed a new contract with Liverpool in December, committing his future to the Reds until June 2016.

The 27-year-old recently rejected reports that the deal included an escape clause that could allow him to move to Real Madrid or Barcelona for a pre-agreed price.

Since joining Liverpool from Ajax in January 2011, Suarez has scored 82 goals in 133 games in all competitions.

He is currently 19th on a list of the club’s all-time leading scorers, marginally ahead of Fernando Torres and just one goal short of drawing level with Albert Stubbins.

Suarez has a long way to go to reach the top of the list, as former Wales international Ian Rush netted 346 times for the Reds.
