Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has praised Luis Suarez for knuckling down at Liverpool after seeing a summer switch to Arsenal blocked.

Mourinho insists he wasn't in for the Uruguayan in preseason.

"Every player is different and every player has his own personality," said the Chelsea manager.

"It happens a lot in the summer, players want to leave and after that it depends on them when they are "forced" to stay; it depends on them whether they will have revenge by not performing, not being committed.

"Ever since Suarez was "forced" to stay, I think his answer was magnificent. You can see his motivation."
