Rodgers confident in Suarez future

Rodgers has been talking to the player’s representative, who also happens to be Pep Guardiola’s brother.

“At this stage I believe so, yes,” when asked about whether Suarez would remain at Liverpool. “There is no getting away from it, Luis has been brilliant this year but I haven’t seen anything different that would make me feel he wouldn’t be here.

“I had a great conversation with his agent a couple of weeks ago. He came in and rolled it out that Luis was so happy here and was keen over the next couple of years for the club to progress.

“I’ve made [Suárez] sort of my architect within the group. He and I communicate a lot so I get a feeling. It is not like I don’t talk to him. Is he deserving of playing at that Champions League level? Of course he is but I would be confident enough that he will be here because he is enjoying his football.”
