Happy as Larry

Brendan Rodgers described Luis Suarez as "back...smiling and happy" as the Uruguay international arrived at Anfield for Liverpool's opening game of the season against Stoke.

I said in the press conference the other day and I repeat the same now, Luis is obviously banned from playing through to the end of September.

Out of respect for all the other players who have been outstanding for me over the course of pre-season I am not going to mention any more about Luis Suarez.

As you can imagine, it's been non-stop really so the only thing is he is back...and he is smiling and happy and we'll move on.
