Liverpool star Suarez is a top player, admits Mancini
The Uruguayan has been in blistering form under Brendan Rodgers this season, notching 17 goals in 23 Premier League matches, and the Manchester City boss is among his fansRoberto Mancini has revealed his admiration for Luis Suarez as the striker prepares to spearhead the Liverpool attack against Manchester City on Sunday.
Often a controversial figure during his time in England, Suarez has been making headlines for the right reasons this season, notching 17 goals in 23 Premier League appearances.
The former Ajax man added to his tally for the season in Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Arsenal and Mancini is well aware of the threat his defence will face.
“Suarez for me is a top player,” the Italian told reporters. “I like him because he is strong and he works hard.
“For me, he is one of the best in England. I like his quality. He has quality and he is strong.”
Mancini was quizzed on any potential interest in the player at the end of the season, with the reigning Premier League champions weakened in attack following the sale of Mario Balotelli to AC Milan, but refused to be drawn on the matter, stating "he is a Liverpool player".
