Liverpool kid Suso: Sterling and I want to match Carragher and Gerrard

Suso admits he and Raheem Sterling want to stay with Liverpool for life.

The pair hope to emulate the success of Reds legends Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher.

"Raheem and I are really good friends. It helps when you come into the side at the same time as another young player, because you both understand each others' situation," Suso told the Telegraph.

"When some new players didn't arrive in August we thought maybe this was our chance, but at the same time I felt a big responsibility when I was selected.

"Raheem and I can give each other support and confidence. Our wish is to be like Gerrard and Carragher, to be able to play as many games and be a top player for so long. Playing with Gerrard and Suárez is something I will treasure forever.

"But there are some young players who may get to the first team and then think 'that's it, I have done everything I want now'. That's not what I think. I know I have just started and this is where the hard work starts.

"In January some new players will probably come and I have to be ready for that and make sure I keep playing."
