Liverpool midfielder Suso has urged manager Brendan Rodgers for more playing time after demonstrating his talent during the dramatic Capital One Cup victory over Middlesbrough on Tuesday 23 September.

The Spaniard came off the bench in extra time to put Liverpool in front after both teams reached the end of 90 minutes at 1-1.

However, Patrick Bamford levelled the game from the penalty spot in the very final seconds of extra time to force a shootout.

Suso emerged then once again to score the 14-13 winner after the longest shootout in the history of the competition as 30 kicks were taken before the Spaniard's goal.

The 20-year-old offensive midfielder returned to Anfield in the summer after a successful loan spell at Almeria.

But having being overlooked by Rodgers during the start of this season, and with his contract at Anfield set to expire next summer, his future at the club looks uncertain.

Suso rejected a renewal offer last summer and now has sent a message to the manager to give him more chances.

"I haven't played in a long time. Being on the pitch after a long time, I was really happy. And after the goal, I was over the moon," he said to Liverpool's official website.

"Now I have scored a goal, with a good performance, it's the manager who decides. I am going to be there. If he wants to use me again, I will be there."

Meanwhile, the Spaniard expressed his satisfaction for scoring his first official goal for the club at senior level.

"I came on and obviously I tried to do the best that I could. I was lucky to score the goal. The game was really good - we were keeping the ball, we were playing really well and having some chances as well. But in the last minute, we conceded a penalty," he said.

"In another situation maybe it wouldn't have happened, but it happened. They didn't really have any good chances in extra time, and in the penalties we were really good.

"Maybe we're not having a comfortable week because of the last Premier League game and people weren't too happy. But we know that we have the best supporters in the Premier League and the world. This win is very important because we went through."
