Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is confident Luis Suarez will remain at Anfield beyond the end of the season, despite his summer flirtations with Arsenal and Real Madrid. The Uruguay striker spelled out his desire to quit Liverpool during pre-season, but the Reds held firm and rebuffed two bids from the Gunners. The move looks like it’s paid off, with Suarez netting six goals in five games since returning from his ten-match ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic last season. However, Rodgers has rejected talk Suarez is likely to be on his way next summer, when he will have just two years remaining on his current contract. ‘No, I wouldn’t say that,’ insisted Rodgers. ‘I think he, like ourselves, wants to be at the very highest level he can be. ‘And you can see by his performances he deserves to be looking at that level.

I still maintain that even if we were in mid-table this would be the place for him to be because this is a massive club – a global institution.
