Liverpool boss Rodgers: I had my doubts about Suarez while at Swansea

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is desperate for Luis Suarez to fix his public image.

Rodgers himself admitted he was swayed by the public perception of Suarez while Swansea boss.

He said: "Rightly or wrongly, I was maybe one of those from the outside who judged the guy from my perception as an opposing manager.

"I'd seen him as a guy who was probably a nuisance and a pest but had qualities. Now I know the man - and I know he is a genuine good-hearted man who, from time-to-time, his impulse will take over. We'll see it again in top sports people.

"The job now is to support and help him and make sure the behaviour we saw doesn't happen again.

"That would make him into a truly great player."
