New boss believes abuse will help Suarez

CONTROVERSY: Luis Suarez refusing to shake Patrice Evra's hand at Old Trafford

NEW LIVERPOOL boss, Brendan Rodgers believes that the abuse Luis Suarez gets from fans will make him a better player.

Suarez was targeted by opposition fans while playing for Uruguay during the Olympic Games.

Following his charge of racially abusing Manchester United’s Patrice Evra, many expect him to get a hard deal at many Premier League stadiums when the season commences.

Rodgers said: "I didn't hear the reaction (during the Olympics) but top players get a bit of stick at every away ground. But if there is a negative reaction towards a player it is normally because they are good.

"We have seen it over time and players can become stronger for sure. Looking at the David Beckham scenario a number of years ago, they were burning effigies of him. Now he is king of the world.

"That is how it can change. The most important thing is to recognise where you are at and then move forward.''
