But when asked if Suarez could be sold in the immediate or longer term, Werner said: ‘Absolutely not. He’s a beautiful player to watch and, as a Liverpool fan, I hope I’m watching him for many years to come. ‘We made a long-term contract with him and we are going to see a lot of his play at Liverpool.’ Reds goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who has also recently been linked with a move away from the club, insists that despite the attention from rivals, his team-mate is happy at Anfield. Reina said: ‘Luis is on fire. He is in really good form and he looks like he can score every game and for us that is very important because we need to profit from that. ‘He will attract the interest of many clubs, it is only normal, but he is quite happy at Liverpool and that is the important thing for us and the supporters. ‘Jamie Carragher said even if he is not the best player then he is the player in better form than anyone in the league right now. ‘He is certainly a world-class striker and it is a good thing he is playing for Liverpool.’
