Brendan Rodgers: Hopes to keep hold of star man

Brendan Rodgers: Hopes to keep hold of star man

Suarez's treble took his tally to 21 Premier League goals for the season, two ahead of Manchester United's Robin van Persie, and Rodgers knows what a special talent he has on his hands.

"He's such a pleasure to work with," he said.

"This is a man, and it might seem strange, who trains every day and wants to train every day. He is so hungry and has the humility.

"He is in there pleased for the team. He has quality, finishing, work-rate and that's what makes him world class."

Philippe Coutinho also impressed again, suggesting he is settling into life in England following his move from Inter Milan.

"He is still picking up fitness and got another 60, 70 minutes today," Rodgers said of the midfielder. "You can see how he fits in to us.

"But this was a fantastic team performance."

The Reds forward will likely have to console himself with Europa League football at best next season, and Rodgers knows that Europe's heavyweights are bound to come calling in the summer in an attempt to lure Suarez away.

"It is hard to say it is not important because it is as top players want to play at the top level," he said.

"There will always be interest in top players and he is a world class player.

"I speak regularly with Luis and I had a good meeting with his agent a few weeks ago who expressed how much he wants to be a part of things going forward."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
