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."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
