Liverpool’s teenage sensation Suso has lit up La Liga with his fine displays for Almeria. This form has gotten Liverpool fans excited and wondering how well Suso will do when his loan spell ends and he returns to Anfield.
In Suso’s 11 La Liga appearances for Almeria so far this season Suso has contributed five assists, the last of which came at the weekend against Valladolid. Added to this, 19-year old Suso has managed one goal for his Spanish side.
Five assists for Suso means that he has more assists than Messi in La Liga this season which is quite a feat. Only Cesc Fabregas, Koke and Neymar having contributed more assists than Suso in the Spanish top-flight during the 2013-14 season.

Suso joined Liverpool’s academy in 2010 and has since made 20 appearances in all competitions for the Liverpool first team. But Brendan Rodgers decided to send him out on loan in the summer so that he can get more regular football. A move which has worked out very well as Suso is certainly getting more minutes on the field.
Here are some fans responses on Twitter with regards to Suso:
Why did we ever allow suso to go on loan

@LFCTransferNRS I think all players we loan out should be like suso. Go to a team in a top league not go to a League 2 team. 2 Progress more

Suso doing really well on loan in La Liga. Would you take him back in January if possible?

Suso is surely gonna be a more independent and capable player once he returns to Liverpool #LFC

You can tell from Suso's play that he's learnt a lot from Suarez, the willingness to take on a player and take them to the byline!

Some fans fear that Suso may opt to stay in Spain after his loan spell. But Suso spoke about his decision to join Almeria, despite other major offers, and stated his desire to return to Liverpool.
“I had bigger offers than the Almeria one, in particular one from Germany, but I wanted to stay attached to Liverpool, an important team for me. When I learned of Almeria’s interest, I didn’t think twice. My goal is to play as much as possible, experience La Liga, and help my team to stay up.”
It will be interesting to see how Suso fits into the Liverpool side next season. Can you imagine a side boasting Suso, Coutinho, Sturridge and Suarez on the same pitch? Now we just need to get our central midfield in order!
