The Uruguayan spent two seasons playing under the Northern Irishman's guidance and in the 2013-14 campaign netted 31 Premier League goals before moving to Barcelona in the summer.
In his new book, which is being serialised by The Guardian, Suarez says: "Generally, English teams are less well-ordered. Brendan stood out - his tactical work was exceptional while some opponents seemed to do little in this area.
"Brendan quickly showed he was adaptable too. Changes were made depending on the opposition. Sometimes, if they only had one up front he would leave three back rather than four and use the full-back to give width and depth to the attack.
"He also knows that he has to listen to the player, to know what he is comfortable doing, and he's exceptional at that. Liverpool are in very good hands with Brendan Rodgers."
Currently, Liverpool sit seventh in the league table after four wins, two draws and three defeats.
