Kolo Toure says all the Liverpool players love Luis Suarez and do not want him to leave.
The Uruguayan striker has been attempting to force a transfer this summer, with Arsenal waiting in the wings, but now appears to be prepared to stay at Anfield.
New defender Toure, who made his debut in Saturday’s 1-0 opening day win over Stoke City, has made it clear that the Reds players are hoping Suarez remains and admits that welcoming him back into the fray will not be a problem.
"I think Suarez was defending himself and the club were defending what they wanted as well, because he is one of the best strikers in the world,” Toure said of his proposed £40million+ move.
"For us, it is really important to keep him. What the club did, for me, is right, because we want to keep him.
"You would never want one of your best players going to another team. We want him to stay because this is a big club.
"It is nothing for us. We know football, it is big business. For a player like Suarez there is no problem, we love him. He can do anything!
"He just resolved the problem with the manager and we want him to score our goals, that is what we are looking for.
"The manager sorted it out with him. He (Brendan Rodgers) was very clever, and Steven Gerrard as well. They worked on him (Suarez) and we are happy he is back training with us again. That is great."
