A round up of all the news and paper talk involving Liverpool this morning
Sturridge said: ‘We get on well and that’s the most important thing. There is no rivalry there, no hidden agendas. We both go out and work hard to help the team. It’s not about the SAS strikeforce, it’s about the team.
‘Everyone wants Luis to stay at the club. It’s up to Luis to decide what he wants to do. If he believes it’s best for him to move on then that’s the way it’s got to be.
‘But the club, the players and the fans all want him to stay and I’m sure he will.’
The Spaniard is currently on loan with Napoli, after moving to the Italian side when Liverpool brought in Simon Mignolet from Sunderland.
Liverpool are set to battle it out with Tottenham for the services of Barcelona midfielder Sergi Roberto – with the 21-year-old commanding a price-tag of £17m according to the Daily Star. The report also suggests that forward Iago Aspas could leave the club in January – after only signing in the summer transfer window.
When discussing the demands of the job, Rodgers said: ‘What I do is a privilege, and I enjoy my work. The reason I worked so hard all my life to get into a position such as this because I want to be making big decisions and managing at the very highest level.’
