Luis Suarez har snackat en hel del i en intervju med The Mirror.
Suarez tror alltjämt att anfallskollegan Carroll besitter stor potential: “Playing alongside a player of Andy’s quality, who’s big, skilful, who brings the ball down so well, makes it easy for a striker to play with him.
“What happened though, was that Andy had the bad luck to be injured for several games and when he came back from that, he picked up another injury. It was difficult for him to get himself into the team because just when Andy came back, the team was playing well and the manager didn’t know who he could drop.
“Now having trained and after a good pre-season for Andy with his team-mates, the more training sessions we have together, he will be better.
“We’ll get a much better understanding of each other and that can only be good for the team.”
Vidare klargör Suarez att han är i Liverpool för att stanna: “I’ve just started a phase of my career which I always dreamed about and wanted to do, which is to play for Liverpool,” sa uruguayanen.
“I have five years left on my contract and I think beyond that, I’m already thinking about staying many more years at Liverpool.
“It’s a club I like. I feel very good about being here, about being in the city.
“I feel very pleased. It would be difficult to match the atmosphere, hunger for success and glory that this club has at another team.”
Suarez gillar Dalglish, språkbarriären gör att de inte snackar särskilt mycket: “The truth is there’s not much conversation with Kenny because of the language barrier, which makes it hard for me.
“But he is the one who has given me confidence. He was the one who had confidence in me. He was the one who said ‘I want Suarez’. That sort of belief is something you repay when you play.
“When a coach gives you confidence, you can give your very best back.
“If you don’t have faith in your manager, it’s very difficult to play well and I think Kenny has a lot of confidence in me.”
