Liverpool loanee Suso has once again received lavish praise in Spain after scoring an amazing free-kick during Almeria's 2-1 victory over Espanyol.
The 20-year-old Liverpool prodigy is proving to Brendan Rodgers that he deserves another chance at Anfield, after the manager decided to send him on loan to Almeria last summer.
Suso is taking every opportunity to prove his worth. He has scored three La Liga goals but also grabbed nine assists, as many as Barcelona star Andres Iniesta and just four less that the current top assist-maker Koke.
Those stats are especially impressive considering that struggling Almeria have only scored 38 goals this season, meaning that Suso has been involved in almost a third of them even though he has only started 25 games.
And the Spanish press have surrendered to his talent, claiming that Almeria's chances of avoiding relegation hinge on the Liverpool star.
In the latest gane against Espanyol, the Spanish youngster came from the bench in the second half, scoring the decisive 2-1 to lead his side to a victory.
Marca said: "Suso came up with new hopes for Almeria. They secured a victory thanks to the great project of a footballer that is Suso. The Liverpool loanee led his side to a vital comeback".
Andalucia-based newspaper Almeria360 added: "Suso's entrance from the bench was decisive, adding quality and the appropriate rhythm, but without a rush." Meanwhile AS claims that his free-kick was "delightful and impossible for the keeper".
Suso joined Liverpool from the Cadiz academy in the summer of 2009 during Rafa Benitez's tenure, and last season he made 20 impressive appearances for the first team.
Spanish press claimed last February that he may be tempted to stay in La Liga by moving permanently to Sevilla but it is understood that Liverpool's desire is to keep the player after Rodgers himself recently praised him
"The likes of young Suso has had a terrific loan in Spain playing regular first team football. He will come back and come into the squad in the summer and then we will assess where he's at," the Anfield boss said.
"It's good for us to put them into clubs who operate with a similar philosophy. That helps their development and hopefully brings them back ready to play pressurised football at a high level."
With Liverpool set to play in the Champions League next season, Rodgers will need to bolster the squad and Suso may be the perfect player to cover Philippe Coutinho.
