The striker has been outstanding since returning from his extended ban.
â€śI got a kick out of the fact that Luis came out on to the pitch before kick-off with his baby and his daughter,â€ť Werner, 63, told the Mirror.
â€śHe shook hands with all the officials and the other players carrying his baby. That is the side of Luis I know, the loving parent.
â€śThere was interest in him from other clubs throughout the summer but it was important for us to try to keep him.
â€śHe is one of the great players of the world and we felt that we would be a stronger club with him than without him.
â€śThat does not mean I donâ€™t respect his intense desire to play in the Champions League. But it would be a very happy day next May if and when we get to the Champions League by finishing in the top four and he is part of it.
â€śIt is our intention to keep him for a while.
â€śOur intention is to build a winning club and he is integral to that. The past is the past and I have great affection for him personally.
â€śI give Brendan Rodgers an enormous amount of credit for making sure Luis knew how needed he was at Liverpool.
â€śBrendan made it plain to him how much he was going to be embraced by the fans, and the supporters have been terrific.â€ť
