Brendan Rodgers has no doubts Luis Suarez will give his all on his return to the Liverpool side when they face Manchester United and promised the fans their faith would be repaid.

Questions were being asked over whether Suarez could repeat the sensational form he showed last season after a summer of turmoil him at the Anfield club.

The Uruguay international openly admitted a desire to Leave Liverpool after they missed out on Champions League football for another year and rivals Arsenal had a £40,000,001 bid turned down for him.

Liverpool stood firm and refused to sell, but the inevitable doubts were raised over whether a player that tried so hard to engineer a transfer could possibly have the same hunger that produced such sterling performances last term.

Rodgers insisted he had no worried over Suarez's attitude and believes the 26-year-old doesn't know how to play any way other than giving everything, trying to win at all costs.

The Anfield boss also admitted last season's top scorer owed the fans and the club after his behaviour during in the summer, but guaranteed Kopites would not be let down.

“You’ll find out once he gets that strip on - he’ll work his socks off. He’s received nothing but affection and love from the supporters," he is quoted as saying in The Mirror.

“They deserve no less than 100 per cent and knowing Luis, that’s what he’ll give them.

“I think he just can’t wait to get playing again. There’s a real determination in him now.

“Obviously there was a lot going on over the course of the summer, but he’s trained really hard, really well, and his entrance to come back into the squad now is perfect timing really.

"The one thing about Luis Suarez, because of the type of character he is - when he plays football, he can’t play it any other way.

“He knows what the club’s stance was and he stayed. We stayed strong in our belief that we wanted to hang on to him."

Suarez is expected to face Manchester United in the Capital One Cup clash on Wednesday, which will be his first game of the season after serving a ten-game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic at the end of last season.
