Luis Suarez has hailed the appointment of Kenny Dalglish as full-time manager - claiming the Scot has been key to his seamless transition into English football.

We caught up with the January signing an hour after news of Dalglish's three-year deal was broken - and he was clearly thrilled.

"It is great news because everyone is very happy with him," said Suarez, who has four goals in 11 games since arriving on Merseyside. "He has worked very hard with us and our relationship with him is great.

"It has been great over the last couple of months. Kenny has given me all my confidence. He trusts me.

"I think all the team feels like this, they all have this confidence because Kenny is the kind of manager that does that.

"We like him very much and hopefully we can keep doing what we're doing."
