Suarez on course to be £100m star, says Rodgers

The Liverpool manager insists that the club have no intention of selling the striker but believes the Uruguayan is on the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes that Luis Suarez is on course to become a £100 million player.

The Uruguay international’s 28 goals have been integral to the Reds’ Premier League title challenge this season after the club were forced to reject two bids from Arsenal last summer.

And while Rodgers has dismissed any suggestions of selling Suarez at the end of the campaign, the Liverpool manager believes that the forward is performing at the same standard as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

“He is certainly heading towards that [£100m valuation],” Rodgers told reporters.

“If you look at the top people in the world, the Ronaldos, the Messis, those who have been doing it for five or six years, he would be right at that level.

“Luis is certainly on his way towards that. His consistency has been phenomenal and what you see now is a more mature player.

“He is a world-class talent. Things evolve and times change. Time will tell.”
