Luis Suarez has admitted he does not understand his daughter Delfina's Scouse accent.

The prolific Liverpool forward revealed that Delfina is so at home on Merseyside that she has already picked up the accent. Suarez, who signed a lucrative long-term contract on Friday, is enjoying a stunning season, with 19 goals in 12 league games.

He praised manager Brendan Rodgers in an interview broadcast on his club's official YouTube channel and said it was his dream to win the title at Anfield, adding his three-year-old daughter has already mastered the local dialect.

"My daughter goes to nursery and she speaks like a Scouser -- I don't understand when she speaks to me in English!" he said.

Suarez added: "I think Brendan Rodgers is a very good coach -- he loves to speak with players for their confidence.

"It's my dream, I hope to win the league and a big trophy with Liverpool. When I win that, I will remember my family."
