Liverpool No.7 benefiting from King Kenny relationship

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez believes the input of Kenny Dalglish will only serve to make him a better player.

Suarez has his red shirt emblazoned with the No.7 made so famous by Dalglish and the Uruguayan has shown signs that he has the ability to make a significant mark of his own at Anfield.

The 24-year-old has already been in inspirational form for Liverpool during his short spell - most notably during the 3-1 win against Manchester United - and has attributed some of his success to the contribution of Dalglish.

"Having a manager like Kenny Dalglish is really great for me. He is a person of great history and importance at the club," he told the official Liverpool website.

"He's one of the best players the club has ever had and now he's correcting me and training me.

"I think it's really great for me to work with a legend such as Kenny and I have enjoyed it so far."


"Yes, of course. I'm looking forward to working with him more in the future."

Suarez moved to Anfield on deadline day for a fee in the region of £24 million and - although he has admitted to being apprehensive about the move - the former Ajax hotshot has quickly settled into life in Liverpool.

"When I first got here I was very nervous being at a big new club and everything in my life changed quickly. But as time has gone on it is getting easier and I like Liverpool as a city and a club.

"My family like the city and to have your wife and daughter by your side makes it a lot easier to settle in and play better on the pitch."
