Liverpool legend Alan Hansen has likened returning Luis Suarez to Kenny Dalglish.

Hansen explained in the Telegraph: "Spurs at home and (Manchester) United away are huge games for Liverpool this week, but I expect Suárez to prove his quality by making a difference.

"Last summer, he spent pretty much the whole of July playing for Uruguay in the Copa America, but rather than citing his international workload and the long journey from South America as a reason for a break, as soon as he returned to Liverpool, he wanted to play.

"The word from the training ground was that he had been sensational and totally committed, but he seems to be that type of guy.

"You get very few in life like that. His manager, Kenny Dalglish, is one of them, but I was different.

"I had a great time as a player and it has given me a great life, but football was a living for me.

"The likes of Suárez and Dalglish live and breathe the game, though.

"That is why Suárez will be so determined to get back onto the pitch."
