Liverpool to turn to Suso to solve striker shortage

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that the club’s youngsters have four months in which to impress him and fill the void left by the Reds’ failure to sign another striker in the transfer window, the Independent has reported.

Rodgers, who admitted the summer did not go to plan for Liverpool on the transfer front, mentioned specifically the 18-year-old Spaniard Suso as a player he would likely give an opportunity to before January.

Speaking to a Liverpool podcast, the Anfield Wrap, Rodgers said: “Boys like Suso will get their opportunity. The percentage under 21s playing in the Premier League is statistically very, very small. We are going to be stretched the limit and [we'll be telling them] 'if you've got little niggles and injuries you've got to man up.' We've got to be together and be strong.

Suso moved to Liverpool from Cadiz in 2010, signed by Rafael Benitez, who earlier this summer predicted the teenager was in for a big season at Anfield. He has yet to make a competitive appearance for the Liverpool first team but Rodgers said he and his ilk are in line for their opportunity in Liverpool’s current predicament, but they have got to step up and take it.

Handed the No. 30 shirt at Liverpool, Suso, who turns 19 in November, has a number of caps for Spain’s different youth levels to his name and won the European U-19 Championship with the Iberians this summer. Shortly after the competition he was invited to take part in Liverpool’s tour of the United States and Canada, playing in the second-half against Toronto.
