Rodgers: Suarez not for sale

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has dismissed rumours Luis Suarez could leave Anfield in the summer, insisting the Uruguayan is an important part of the club's future plans.

Liverpool have no plans to sell striker Luis Suarez in the summer

Suarez, 25, was lively during Liverpool's 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday, although he failed to add to his season tally of 22 goals in the Premier League.

Amid suggestions that Suarez could ask for an early release from his contract to pursue Champions League football, Rodgers has denied the striker is eager to leave Liverpool and said the club will not be forced to cash in on one of their most influential players.

"It is very important we keep hold of Luis. He is a wonderful player," Rodgers said. "He came back late on Thursday, was in training on Friday and I saw how tired he was. He looked totally shattered from all the travel and all the exertions of the games.

 

"But you look at him at Villa, his energy and willingness to work for the team and just his sheer quality. We don't have to sell Luis. There is nothing like that. He is very happy and we don't need to sell him for the money or anything like that.
 
"Our job is trying to build the group here and add to it. We've bought front and midfield players and we want to keep striving forward and there is no need to sell."

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was the main talking point from Villa Park, with his penalty and goal line clearance helping the Reds take all three points over Paul Lambert's relegation-threatened side.

Rodgers continued his praise for Gerrard, once again insisting the 32-year-old has shown no signs of reaching the twilight of his career.

 

"Steven had to get an injection in his heel to play. We had an issue with his heel for a couple of days," he said. "He had a bit of pain and was struggling to get his boot on. But for him it was a case of whatever it takes to play. It was nothing major but many other players might not have played or even trained. That shows the mentality and mindset of the man.
 
"Can Gerrard play on into his late 30s? Absolutely, no question about that. Guys who do that like Giggs, Scholes, McAllister, it is not what they are doing now, it is what they have done earlier in their careers, when they were 17, 18, 19, 20. A new contract is something on the agenda. It will happen in due course."
