Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been compared to a Spanish coach by Suso.

The attacking midfielder remains on the fringes at Anfield, picking up first team appearances after the arrival of the Northern Irishman back in 2012, but none after that following a season on loan.

Spanish style

But that hasn’t stopped the versatile 20-year-old - who can also play on the wing - from heaping praise on the boss, insisting that his style and the way he tries to play the game is reminiscent of coaches from his homeland.

"I look at him and I see him as similar to a Spanish coach because all the work we do in training is with the ball," Suso told the official Liverpool website.

"Every time he asks us to do something it's with the ball. He wants us to play with the ball, never play a long ball and for me that's really good because that's my philosophy. When I go away with Spain it's more or less the same.”

Impressive beginnings

Suso joined Liverpool back in 2010, and was an instant hit in both the youth and reserve teams on Merseyside. He made his debut in Rodgers’ first season at the club, appearing 14 times in the Premier League before spending the entirety of the campaign on loan at Almeria in La Liga.

He’s back with the Reds now though, and looking to make his mark on Rodgers in a bid to force his way into the first team.

The manager’s work at Liverpool certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed in the player’s eyes, and Suso believes the football philosophy will stand the club in good stead for years to come.

'Good for me'

"He has done really well since he came to Liverpool. When he first came he had to change some things and improve the team, which takes a long time, but now we can see all the things he was working with in the past is working now,” added the youngster.

"It's a Spanish philosophy to play; you always want the ball, don't lose it and give it to the opposition. It's really good for me and the team."

Suso has an outside chance of being selected for Saturday's late kick-off between Liverpool and Aston Villa, and he will hope he's impressed at Melwood during the international break.
