Luis Suárez has encouraged Liverpool’s senior players to help the club’s “quality” youngsters develop at the Merseyside outfit.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has been unafraid to use young stars such as Jonjo Shelvey, Raheem Sterling and Suso in the Premier League this season.

Liverpool were confirmed as the youngest side in the English top flight on Wednesday with an average age of 23.38 – and Suárez has been impressed by the impact of Sterling and his young colleagues.

“We’ve got a lot of quality youngsters here, such as Raheem, Suso showed what he could do the other day,” Suarez told Liverpool’s website.

“[Adam] Morgan has to keep taking his chance to feature more and more, and [Jerome] Sinclair made his debut.

“They are all really good players and they are at Liverpool for a reason. The form that Raheem has been showing and Suso the other day, they are showing us that they want to help the team.

“And we so-called experienced players are always there to help them so let’s hope that they continue to develop and don’t just stand still but continue to prove exactly why they are at Liverpool.”

When asked if the Reds youngsters have approached the striker for advice, he replied: “Not really, maybe it’s because I don’t speak English or something.

“But I think it should be us who are offering advice to them, telling what they are doing well, and not so well, but I think they do realise that they have to learn things from the older players.”
