'Everything has been resolved' - Rodgers confident on Suarez Liverpool stay



The Reds manager is content that Arsenal's interest will not come to fruition after the in-demand striker attended his side's 1-0 Premier League victory over Stoke City

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says that "everything has been resolved" regarding the future of Luis Suarez.

Arsenal have pursued the Uruguayan for much of the summer but have not upped their bid from their most recent, which was over £40 million, and the Reds boss was adamant on Friday that the saga would not "sabotage" his club's season.

But the forward was in attendance as Liverpool opened the

Premier League with a 1-0 win over Stoke City and Rodgers seemed content that there would be no more question of an exit.

"The only thing I will say about Luis is that I am very satisfied how everything has been resolved and now we can move on," the victorious manager told the press.

"He is a part of this team and this club. The supporters are a class act here and it is the classic Liverpool way to support the players and the manager."

Suarez is unavailable for the next five games as he continues to serve a 10-match ban incurred last season for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.
