Luis Suarez inspired by Batistuta

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has revealed he has modelled his ''never surrender'' attitude on former Argentina frontman Gabriel Batistuta.

Suarez, 24, has made a significant impact both on the pitch and among fans since his £22.8 million January arrival from Ajax. He thanked manager Kenny Dalglish for helping him settle in on Merseyside but said he drew most of his inspiration from Argentina's all-time leading scorer.

''Gabriel Batistuta reflects the bread and butter of the striker; what his soul must be,'' the 24-year-old told FourFourTwo. ''I think I have that never-surrender attitude from him, because he never gave up.''

Dalglish has also had an effect on Suarez, who does not yet speak English fluently and is still getting to grips with life on Merseyside.

''I've already learned a lot from him,'' he said. ''It seems like it's only been a little while since he was last coaching. The first thing he said to me was 'Hola, bienvenido' (Hello, welcome). He still talks to me in Spanish because I don't understand English fully yet. This makes me feel wanted.''

Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge has called for the club's American owners to continue investing in new recruits in order to allow the club to bounce back from a disappointing season.

''The defeat at West Brom only told us what we all already knew - Liverpool's squad is in urgent need of strengthening this summer,'' Aldridge wrote in the Liverpool Echo. ''Kenny Dalglish has done a great job since he took over but he can only do so much with the players he has available.

''When Dalglish is confirmed as the permanent manager he will address those problem areas but he needs a lot of cash to do that. We need a left-back and we also have a problem at centre-back which needs addressing at some point.

''There's talk of Liverpool going in for Bolton's Gary Cahill this summer and I think someone of his stature would certainly fit the bill. The lack of width in the side sticks out like a sore thumb. We desperately need someone capable of beating a man and providing crosses for Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez.

''We've got a strikeforce to be proud of now but we need to improve what's behind them. We could do with five players but there's no point bringing in squad players - we've got enough of them. What we need is top-drawer players in order to take the club forward.''
