Liverpool boss Rodgers insists Suarez can win back Premier League fans

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists Luis Suarez can win over Premier League fans.

Suarez was disgraced last season when he was found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.

"I didn't hear the reaction (during the Olympics) but top players get a bit of stick at every away ground," he said.

"But if there is a negative reaction towards a player it is normally because they are good.

"We have seen it over time and players can become stronger for sure.

"Looking at the David Beckham scenario a number of years ago, they were burning effigies of him. Now he is king of the world. That is how it can change.

"The most important thing is to recognise where you are at and then move forward."
