The Liverpool boss has played up the talent of the striker, who has been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award, by insisting he would star for any team in England
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes Luis Suarez should be favourite for the PFA Player of the Year award, after insisting that no Premier League side would reject the striker.
The controversial player helped to kick-start Liverpool’s season when the attacking resources of the club looked bare, and the Liverpool manager believes that is one of the reasons why Suarez was nominated, and why he deserves to win the accolade.
“It’s great for him and it’s also a mark of the team,” Rodgers told reporters.
“He will say himself he has got great support from the players around him. But for him his role and function in the team has been absolutely outstanding and I’m sure he’ll be one of the favourites to win it.
“The players that have been mentioned are top-quality players – players like Gareth Bale and Robin van Persie have had outstanding seasons. But I can only look at Luis as a player. I don’t think there is any club in the country that wouldn’t want him in their team.
“What he has done for us this season has been amazing. He would certainly be my favourite for it – and he’d thoroughly deserve it.”
