Liverpool boss Rodgers praises Suarez’ commitment
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed the commitment of striker Luis Suarez, after the striker starred in the victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, BBC Sport is reporting.
The Uruguayan scored a hat-trick as Liverpool ran out comfortable 4-1 winners at Anfield, taking his tally to six since he returned from a 10-match ban in September. That came after a summer during which he publicly announced his desire to leave the club, with Arsenal and Real Madrid among his potential suitors.
However, Rodgers has reintegrated Suarez back into the fold, and the strike partnership between he and Daniel Sturridge has proved to be very successful, helping the Reds to second in the Premier League.
And the former Swansea City and Watford boss has hailed Suarez’ performance level since returning to the starting XI. He said: "I knew once I got the commitment from him in the summer he wasn't going to walk out. He is a tireless worker and I knew that if he stayed it would be a case of him working as he always done because he is that kind of character.
"It was a difficult summer for him but it was for everyone. But we managed it as a club and he managed himself well and he has come out of the other side and he is performing as he does, to a very high level."
