Former Liverpool midfielder Suso has been discussing the series of events that led to him leaving Anfield.

The 22-year-old spent five years at Anfield, making his senior debut under Brendan Rodgers in September 2012 before being sent out on loan to Spanish side Almeria the following summer.

Overall, he made 21 appearances for the club, but found first team opportunities at Andfield hard to come by. In January 2015, with his contract running out at the end of the season and negotiations over a new deal very much at an impasse, the former Spanish under-21 international chose to move to Serie A side AC Milan for €1.3m.

With youth very much one of Rodgers’ replacement as manager Jurgen Klopp’s strong points, Suso could be forgiven for having some regrets about leaving when he did, but he insists that he did the right thing, telling Milan’s in-house television channel:

And while I was waiting, the possibility to come to Milan arrived.

“I believe that when a club this important wants you then you can’t have doubts, it was the right choice.

“I’m fine here, I think that I’m not missing anything, maybe I’d like to have my family closer but they come to visit me and I’m fine with my girlfriend.

“Honestly, I don’t miss anything.”

during the Serie A match between AC Milan and US Sassuolo at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on October 2, 2016 in Milan, Italy.

After being sent on loan to Genoa last season, Suso is now firmly settled at Milan and has become a regular starter at the club, appearing in all of his side’s Serie A games so far this season.

Liverpool seem to be coping just fine without him too, it must be said.
