Brendan Rodgers believes Luis Suarez misses the unique bond he shared with Liverpool fans and would only consider the Reds upon any return to the Premier League, according to Sky Sports.

The 43-year-old managed Suarez throughout the entirety of the Uruguayan's career on Merseyside and insists he will always hold Anfield close to his heart.

Rodgers told talkSPORT: "I think he certainly misses the passion of the Liverpool supporters and he loved the competition of the Premier League.

"Luis is enjoying it out there at Barcelona, but I think if he did ever come back, there would certainly be only one club he'd want to play for.

"He absolutely loved it at Liverpool, the supporters adored him and he gave absolutely everything."

Suarez struck 82 goals in 133 appearances for the Reds prior to leaving for Barcelona in July 2014, when the Spanish giants swooped in with a massive £75 million bid.

The 28-year-old has continued his clinical form at the Camp Nou, where his record currently stands at a remarkable 55 goals in 74 matches across all competitions for the La Liga champions.

Considering Suarez rubs shoulders with the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar in the dressing room, Rodgers says the Uruguay international deserves praise for improving an already star-studded side.

"Barcelona was an incredible move for Luis, and it's such a great credit to him that his move made an already world-class team even better," he said.

Renowned for his determination and willingness to run himself into the ground for the good of his team, Suarez has earned a reputation as one of the most skilled yet industrious frontmen in the business.

Rodgers, a keen admirer of the South American’s gritty approach, refused to rule out a second stint on Merseyside for Suarez.

"It's a joy to watch him score goals and work as hard as he does for one of the best teams in the world... But you never know."
