Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says Luis Suarez is a big part of their future plans.

Rodgers insists Suarez's winning attitude is a great influence on the club.

He told Sky Sports: "He's an incredible guy and what is so remarkable about him is his will to train hard every day. He travels far away to internationals and then comes back and doesn't want to have a breather. He loves it at Liverpool.

"He's a winner like us all, and so we want to improve the group so that we can be up there, challenging consistently at the top end of the league. He'll be important to that. Steven Gerrard recently said that he could be the best player he has ever played with. That is an incredible testament to Luis's ability because of the number of players Steven has played alongside. And also, the fact that Steven himself is absolutely world class."
