Rodgers tells Liverpool striker Suarez: Bad behaviour wrecks your reputation

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits Luis Suarez is hurting his reputation with his on-field behaviour.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits Luis Suarez is hurting his reputation with his on-field behaviour.

Although the Uruguayan is widely seen as third to only Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo on the world stage, his gaffer reckons he will never become one of the game’s legends until he ditches the crazy moments that blight his career.

Rodgers said: “You can never be called a great player when your behaviour is like that.

“Everyone isn’t perfect. If you have a squad of perfect players, you might not have that quality to win.

“Our idea is to help the perception of Luis Suarez, from a world-class player. I know he is a good person but there are many in the country who don’t see him like that because they don’t know him.”
