Arsene Wenger: Still admires Luis Suarez

Arsene Wenger: Still admires Luis Suarez

Wenger tried, and failed, to buy Suarez in the summer after the Uruguayan demanded a move from Anfield.

Suarez, though, has since settled his differences with the Reds and is now one of the most feared player's on the planet with 14 goals in his last eight Premier League games.

He played a starring role in Liverpool's demolition of Tottenham at the weekend and, speaking after the game on French television - working as a pundit - Wenger admitted he was still a huge admirer of Suarez.

"I think that every defender in England hates playing against him," he said on Telefoot.

"He has a strong, provocative personality. From the information I gathered on him it appears that on a day-to-day level he is really easy to work with.

"Also that he's respectful, he loves training, he's an angel. He turns into a demon when he's on the pitch.

"We all dream about having players like that."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
