Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers: 'Luis Suarez leaves legacy at Anfield'

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes Luis Suarez left a legacy at Anfield for younger players to learn from.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes that striker Luis Suarez has left a legacy for other players to learn from at the club.

Rodgers is hoping that the quality of Suarez, who left the Reds for Barcelona this summer, can rub off on some of the younger players at Anfield.

Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo: "The top players help develop the younger players. I see the attitude of some of the young players because of the likes of Luis and Steven who are at it 150% every day.

"I think Luis will leave a legacy here. I know young Phil [Coutinho] has learned from him, he wants to be out training every day, never wants to miss a day, fights in training and wants to improve. I know Luis was a big influence on him."

Liverpool host Southampton on Sunday as they begin their Premier League campaign.
