NEW boss Brendan Rodgers has told Liverpool: Forget about letting Luis Suarez leave the club.
Suarez, banned for eight matches last season following his race row with Manchester United’s Patrice Evra, looked to be on the way out of Anfield — despite some superb performances and 17 goals in all in 2011-12.
But the arrival of Rodgers has now changed all that.
A source close to the Uruguayan star said: “It is thought Juventus were about to offer £16million or try to broker a cash plus player deal involving Eljero Elia or Milos Krasic.
“But Rodgers has spoken with Luis to gain his confidence and explain the new project and his role in the team. Luis is calm about everything.”
