Promising Liverpool midfielder Suso has told fans that he will not return to Spain when his contract runs out next year and that he is enjoying life under new boss Brendan Rodgers.
Rafael Benitiz brought him to Merseyside from Cadiz three years ago, and he signed a professional contract on his 17th birthday under the now sacked manager.
“We have been talking about a contract since the start of the season,” he told a Spanish radio station reported by the Guardian.
“We’re nearly there: we’ll sign soon. I’m happy here, very comfortable. This is the ideal club for me in every sense. This is like a dream for me.”
Suso was in danger of being lost amongst the shuffle following the appointment of Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish in the last few hears but he spoke fondly of his time under Hodgson and says he is happy that he will get the opportunity he deserves under Rodgers.
“Brendan Rodgers is a coach that if you prove to him that you can perform, if you work hard, has no problem in putting young players in the team. I have started three times and things are going well. It’s a gift for me. I’m very happy here, very comfortable.”
