The path ahead is clear for Suarez to further establish himself as a Liverpool legend and in the future take his place in the Anfield hall of fame alongside the likes of Kenny Dalglish, Kevin Keegan and Ian Rush.
Rodgers said: "To have that status you need longevity. You need to be here for a number of years. And that is possible.
"Everyone recognises that he has that potential and the quality to be that player.
"So time will tell. It is about being at a club for a number of years but certainly the potential is there.
"Hopefully you will see over the next couple of years that that will be the case."
