Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes that striker Luis Suarez is at the right club following his attempts to leave Merseyside in the summer.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is adamant that striker Luis Suarez is at the right club following a summer plagued by transfer rumours.

The Uruguayan expressed a desire to leave the Merseyside outfit before the start of the season, with Arsenal trying to test the Reds' resolve with a reported £40,000,001 bid.

However, Liverpool were able to keep hold of the 26-year-old, who has returned to the side in impressive form, netting a hat-trick during Saturday's 4-1 win over West Bromwich Albion at Anfield.

"For me, this is the place for Luis," quotes Rodgers as saying. "I still maintain that even if we were in mid-table this would be the place for him to be because this is a massive club, a global institution.

"But as a football club and as a team we are growing, and he can grow with us. Luis has the support of everyone at the club and the love of everyone and because this is a worldwide institution, there is no better place for him to grow."

Suarez has already been linked with a January exit from Liverpool, with Real Madrid named as a potential suitor.
