Liverpool teenage starlet Suso has revealed he wants to become an Anfield legend like Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, and hailed Reds boss Brendan Rodgers as 'one of the best people he's worked with.'

The young Spaniard has broken into the Liverpool first-team this season under Brendan Rodgers, and the 18-year-old wants to cement his place in the Reds team for years to come.

Suso joined the Anfield club in 2010 after Rafael Benitez spotted his potential, convinced him to spurn an offer from Real Madrid, and instead join the Reds on Merseyside.

And, speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Suso revealed how he, and others that have graduated from the academy like Raheem Sterling, aim to copy the example set by the likes of Gerrard and Carragher.

"Raheem and I can give each other support and confidence," Suso said. "Our wish is to be like [Steven] Gerrard and [Jamie] Carragher, to be able to play as many games and be a top player for so long.

"Playing with Gerrard and [Luis] Suarez is something I will treasure forever."

Suso, Sterling, and 19-year-old Andre Wisdom started at Anfield at the weekend, as Liverpool fought back to secure a 1-1 draw against Newcastle.

And Suso praised the impact of Rodgers on the Liverpool team this season.

"In Spain, it is not normal for someone who is only 18 to play for the first team for a club the size of Liverpool. It never happens.

"But Brendan is one of the best people I have ever met and there is no time when he is not talking to you, when he is not trying to help."

But Brendan Rodgers' side have struggled so far, and have stumbled to one of their worst starts in their Premier League history.

Liverpool currently sit twelfth in the table, with 11 points from their first 10 games, and it doesn't get any easier as they face Chelsea in their next Premier League match at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
