Rodgers admits he could've sold the midfielder in the summer.
"Suso is a technician and I like technically gifted players who can tactically participate in the game," said the manager.
"We had offers for him to go abroad but he was keen to stay, he understood he was going to get a chance here.
"He is tactically very good, strong technically with the ball. He makes things happen. I love that type of player. Talent finds space. He is a real talent."
