Luis Suarez is one of the most beautiful men you could come across. He’s a very humble guy who works tirelessly at his profession. He is a super-professional, a family man who gives everything for his life as a footballer and his family.

The players have been absolutely first class throughout the season… we have a belief in our work and how we work. People will look at it at this stage of the season and try and say that Liverpool have maybe won the title and Manchester City won’t, or will Leicester do it again? (But) there is still so much football to play
