Roberto Mancini: A big admirer of Luis Suarez

Mancini has been linked with a move for Suarez in the summer as he looks to bring in a replacement for Mario Balotelli.

Suarez will come up against Mancini this weekend and the City boss is a big fan of the Uruguayan forward.

"Suarez for me is a top player," Mancini said. "I like him because he is strong and he works hard.

"For me, he is one of the best in England."

Asked if he would like to sign Suarez, Mancini laughed: "Suarez? But he plays for Liverpool.

"Yeah I like his quality. He has quality and he is strong."

Suarez recently pledged his future to Liverpool saying he would stay at Anfield even if they fail to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
