Rodgers Believes Suarez Is Priceless

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has insisted that striker Luis Saurez is priceless and admitted that any club on the planet would be happy to have the Uruguayan in their team.

The controversial goal-getter scored four goals midweek against Norwich City and then got on the score-sheet again in the 4-1 win over West Ham on Saturday.

"I don't think you can put a price on him and I wouldn't want to," said Rodgers.

"He has two-and-a-half years here and if you look at his consistency in his game and how he is playing, at this moment in time he is up there with the best players in the world.

"Whatever price people put on that then that is what people do, but at the moment it is not of interest to me or him."

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini had said in the week that Sergio Aguero was better than the current Premier League’s top goal-scorer but Rodgers disagreed, and stated that he wouldn’t swop his star player for anyone else.

"Most teams in the world would want Luis Suarez. I think Aguero is a wonderful player as well but I wouldn't swap Suarez for anyone,” Rodgers admitted.

"I get the chance to work with him every day and what he gives is a relentless desire.”

"When you have that, you don't want to let him go. It hasn't always been smooth sailing of course but it never is,” he added.

"We have a strong relationship. He is a very humble man. There has been a lot said about him but beneath it all he is a real good guy who is a true professional.”
