Liverpool can never sell Suarez, insists Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers has said that Luis Suarez can never be allowed to leave Liverpool in the manner Fernando Torres was 18 months ago, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Luis Suarez

Chelsea paid Liverpool £50m for the Spain international and with the proceeds of that transfer Liverpool signed Andy Carroll from Newcastle United and Suarez from Dutch side Ajax. Carroll is now on loan at West Ham United after an unsuccessful spell at Anfield, but Suarez has gone from strength to strength, scoring three goals in his three games.

Rodgers feels that in replacing Torres with Suarez Liverpool can again claim to have one of the best strikers in world football, but one that they must not entertain selling if faced with a similar situation. Instead, Rodgers called for Liverpool to add players of the same calibre as the Uruguayan.

The manager added: “I don’t know what happened with Torres, but times move on and we now have one of the best strikers in the world with Luis. We have to ensure we keep the best players like him.

It’s up to us as a club to add players that can help support Luis and move us on. I believe if you look at our starting 11, if we can add three players or so to the group, we will be very, very strong, we just need to add a few players who can finish off some of our great work.

In his three-and-a-half years at Liverpool, Torres made 142 appearances, scoring 81 goals. So far, Suarez has 31 goals in 67 games.
