Liverpool's Rodgers Hails Suarez, Sturridge

Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers hailed Luis Suarez after the Uruguayan goal machine recorded yet another hat trick en route to the Reds 6-3 win against Cardiff City on Saturday. Suarez now has 28 goals in the Premier League this season, equaling Robbie Fowler’s club record, which he will surely beat as long as he stays fit for the final eight games of the season.

"[Suarez] is a remarkable player. His determination and his desire is at such a high level. He gets his rewards," Rodgers told reporters after the game. "He's a world-class player, who is enjoying his football and long may it continue."

The Liverpool boss went on to praise Suarez’s striking partner Daniel Sturridge, who set up Liverpool’s fifth and Suarez’s second with an outstanding backheel flick.
