Suarez to play mentor role

SoccerNews in English Premier League 3 Oct 2012


Luis Suarez has backed Liverpool’s youngsters to continue their rapid improvement and vowed to help them along the way.

The Uruguayan has been impressed by the likes of Raheem Sterling and Suso, among others, and understands his role as a senior player is to support them.

“We’ve got a lot of quality youngsters here, such as Raheem; Suso showed what he could do the other day,” Suarez told the club’s official website.

“(Adam) Morgan has to keep taking his chance to feature more and more and (Jerome) Sinclair made his debut.”

But the Liverpool striker has urged the younger members of the Merseyside club not to rest on their laurels and to continue to work hard to improve.

“They are all really good players and they are at Liverpool for a reason. The form that Raheem has been showing and Suso the other day, they are showing us that they want to help the team,” he said.

“And we so-called experienced players are always there to help them so let’s hope that they continue to develop and don’t just stand still but continue to prove exactly why they are at Liverpool.”

Suarez believes it is the role of the senior players in the side to educate, encourage and aid Liverpool’s youngsters.

“I think it should be us who are offering advice to them, telling what they are doing well, and not so well,” he said. “But I think they do realise that they have to learn things from the older players.”
