Suso has revealed that he was inspired by Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard’s professionalism.

The 21-year-old signed a four-year deal with AC Milan at the weekend after he failed to agree a new deal with the 18-time English champions.

Suso has barely featured under manager Brendan Rodgers this season, although he featured heavily in the Northern Irishman’s first Anfield campaign.

And the Milan midfielder discussed England centurion Gerrard’s impact on his mentality during his five-year stay at the 18-time English champions.

Speaking to Marca following his switch to the San Siro outfit, Suso said:

“What did I learn from Steven? His professionalism. He trains every day as if it was his first, as if he was a youth team player. It was a daily lesson.”

The Milan signing made his last Liverpool appearance against Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup, scoring his only goal for the Merseyside outfit in extra time.

The Spanish midfielder spent last season on loan at La Liga side Almeria, scoring three goals and making seven assists in 26 games.

Suso, who moved to Liverpool from Cadiz in 2010, scored one goal in 21 appearances for the Merseyside outfit.
