Luis Suarez has suggested he may be willing to stay at Liverpool and end his dispute with the club.Speaking on Tuesday, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard admits he is desperate for his Anfield team-mate to stay on Merseyside. "If I can use my influence to try to make him stay, I will try to do that," he told a press conference ahead of England's friendly against Scotland. "For Liverpool to move forward, it's important we keep our best players. "I really don't know what is going to happen with him but I'm really confident he won't be going to anyone else in England." Earlier in the week, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers stated there can be "no solution" to the stand-off with Suarez as long as the striker refuses to apologise. He told the club website: "It is something that we have to do everything we can to fix. "There has been a lot said and a lot reported, and we have made a stance, as a club and as a manager, of the commitment and the standards required. "If you don't have that commitment, and those standards, then you won't play. It's as simple as that. "If we have got to sit and wait, then so be it. But this is a club that has got great values, and we hope that the situation can be resolved amicably, and I am sure it will be. "There's no problem between me and him, it is quite calm. But obviously I have got to respect the club and the team. "It doesn't matter who you are, if they're not pulling their weight then they are letting down the club, the city and everyone who has stood by them. "So until I get that assurance that we are going to get nothing but 100% commitment, then there will be no solution."
