Liverpool boss Dalglish: Suarez always smiling

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish admits Luis Suarez's arrival has been a breath of fresh air.

The 24-year-old has made a big impression in the Liverpool changing room and the boss reckons he has a maturity that belies his tender years.

"We said right away when he came that he is a happy, smiley guy," Dalglish told "He brought his little girl in and she is exactly the same, though she can't play, mind. He, Maxi Rodríguez and Raul Meireles are very close and he is happy with his life.

"The responsibility is not doing him any harm. He is very mature for his age. To go to Holland when he was 17 or 18 and speak fluent Dutch - which they say is one of the most difficult languages to learn - and become captain of Ajax was an achievement. It tells you a wee bit about him."
