Rodgers convinced Luis Suarez will stay

Liverpool manager Brendan RodgersBrendan Rodgers has admitted that every player has his price but says he is convinced Luis Suarez will be at the club next season.

Suarez looked to have shaken off at least part of his bad boy reputation last season until he inexplicably took a bite out of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic which sees him banned for the opening six games of next season.

His 30 goals for the Reds also showed his brilliant side and why there will be no shortage of clubs trying to land him with Bayern Munich leading the way, if Liverpool do decide to cash in.

Rodgers told Talksport he has no intention of letting him go, though, and he is under no pressure to do so but understands there will be clubs trying to buy him.

“Listen, every player has their price but there’s certainly no pressure for the club to sell him. We’re trying to build that bit of quality so he’s not for sale,” he explained.

“I don’t have any doubts there will be interest in him this summer, because he’s up there.

“There’s a small percentage of players who are world class and he’s in that bracket, so I don’t think it will be too dissimilar to when I first came in last summer, with clubs making their interest known.”

Rodgers added: “People will want to take him, but I think we all recognise how integral he is. The owners have been absolutely unequivocal in their resolve in terms of wanting to keep him.”
