Departed Liverpool star backs club to recover from his sale

Luis Suarez is sure that Brendan Rodgers is the right man to guide Liverpool into a successful future without him at Anfield.

The Uruguayan ace scooped the PFA Player of the Year award last season after notching a staggering 31 goals in 33 appearances as the Reds came within a whisker of a first ever Premier League title.

Suarez was then sold over the summer to Barcelona in a £75m deal, prompting a downturn in fortunes at Anfield.

Despite investing over £100m in new players during the last transfer window, Liverpool have made a stuttering start to 2014/15, with losses to West Ham and Aston Villa particularly disappointing.

But the 27-year-old – who is closing in on a return from a ban imposed on him for his infamous World Cup biting incident – says that his old boss can turn things around:

“Brendan Rodgers has great ideas,” he is quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

“I said when I left the club that I was leaving them in good hands, and I am sure he will be even more successful than he has been.”
