Suso gets new Liverpool contract
Liverpool, England (Sports Network) - Liverpool teenager Suso signed a new long-term contract with the club on Friday after breaking into the first team this season under manager Brendan Rodgers.
Suso was handed his first-team debut last month and has started two more league matches for the Reds despite being just 18 years old.
"I am really happy," Suso told the club's official website. "Liverpool are one of the biggest clubs in the world and this is the right place for me.
"I am happy Brendan has shown trust in me. I had no questions about signing a new deal and I am really glad to have done so."
Suso has represented Spain at various youth levels and started every game during the Under-19 European Championships, which was won by Spain.
"At 18, Suso has demonstrated outstanding technical qualities but also shown very good temperament to play for such a prestigious club," Rodgers said.
"His commitment is very good news for all our young Academy players and the excellent work taken place by the Academy coaches and staff."
