Uruguayan super star Luis Suarez will stay at Liverpool, says Brendan Rodgers.
The star striker is currently serving a 10-match ban, and has not hesitated to talk up a potential move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, who are reportedly interested.
Liverpool Manager Brendan Rodgers, however, reiterates that the club is in “complete control of the situation”
Rodgers told TalkSport: “I will always listen to players. I always work closely with players and always listen to their point of view but the biggest word is with the club.
“We’re in a situation where we’ve got a player who we don’t want to lose. We’re trying to build something here and he’s a very important part of that and because of the type of player he is, he will always give his best.”
The Northern Irishman remains adamant that Suarez loves Liverpool, but that the Media ignores that, in order to stir uncertainty and controversy:
“What I know is that the support Luis has had from the people here in Liverpool, the city and the football club, has been phenomenal and I know he feels that and respects that.
“Sometimes interviews get put out there and highlighted but parts of Luis’s interviews have been about how much he loves Liverpool, but of course that doesn’t get highlighted,” Rodgers added.
“It’s something that happens. I’m quite relaxed about it.
Rodgers furthermore confirmed that the imminent arrival of Simon Mignolet will not affect Pepe Reina’s future at the club
