Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers have released a statement regarding the transfer of Luis Suarez to Barcelona thanking the player for his services at the club and saying that they were reluctant to let him depart.
Suarez improved greatly as a player playing under Rodgers, reaching his full potential, scoring 61 goals in 81 games in all competitions.
Here’s an extract from the statement: “Luis is a very special talent and I thank him for the role he has played in the team in the past two years, during my time at Liverpool.
“I think he would be the first to accept he has improved as a player over that period, along with the team and has benefited from being here, as we have benefited from him.
“The club have done all they can over a sustained period of time to try to keep Luis at Liverpool. It is with great reluctance and following lengthy discussions we have eventually agreed to his wishes to move to Spain for new experiences and challenges. We wish him and his young family well; we will always consider them to be friends.”
