Former Liverpool star Luis Suarez hails Celtic-bound Brendan Rodgers as one of the best managers in Europe

Luis Suarez has spoken of his admiration for his former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers, out of work since being sacked by the Merseyside club in October, is preparing to return to management with Celtic.

And Suarez says the Scottish champions will be getting one of the best coaches in Europe if they do secure his signature.

The Uruguayan starred under Rodgers during his three-year spell at Anfield, earning the striker a £75million move to Barcelona in 2014.

He has been in sensational form for the Spanish giants since his switch to the Nou Camp, scoring 40 goals in La Liga this season alone.

But the 29-year-old claims he wouldn’t be the player he is without Rodgers’ input.

“He is one of the best coaches in Europe and I am not surprised he is looking to get back in to the game because it is a game he loves,” said Suarez.

“I am glad he has taken his time since leaving Liverpool. He should only be looking at the top jobs, with the top clubs, who will be playing Champions League football.

“If it was not for Brendan, then I know I would not be the same player that you see at Barcelona today.

“Such a big part of my education is down to him and his management. Of course he works to make the team stronger but he really works on a one to one level with the players.

“He will sit down with each player at the club, and work on where you can improve, where you can exploit opposition, he leaves nothing to chance.

“He is a very intelligent man. If the players at his next club listen to his words, they will become better players for sure.”
