    Aw... crap! This is something I was hoping do not go through. Oh well.... another one bites the dust I think.

    Has Rodgers said anything about this?

    I very much hope this is just a development loan so he can get game time, as opposed to a loan for the sake of a loan.

    Either way, does it matter? He is going to spend a year in a great league trying to prove himself and if he does, then we have a win win situation.
    If he doesn't then we'll also have a more clear idea as to who he is and what he might be.

    As long as he gets played regularly this will be good for him. Should speed up his development more than a year with us would.

    Interesting to note that Almeria's manager is a 35-year old, Francisco Rodriguez. This is his first managerial job at senior level and signed a 1-year deal last month.

    Very much doubt we will see him again.... How many times have we sent players out on loan & they have come back? We should have kept him. I think he could have made an impression this season. Definitely better prospect than Sterling.

    Also if you think of the golden generation at United. They all made it at 18 -19 into the first XI....

    We have no idea how the new signings will work out....

    Kelly went out on loan and played in the firsts, as did spearing.

    And beckham for united.

    Don't understand this fearmongering, we most likely will see him again because he's much better than the others we've sent out never to see again.

    it is a bit different when players go to foreign teams

    I hope we do see Suso in red shirt again, he is a great talent

    All the fear about never seeing Suso again is predicated on Rodgers being too stupid to see what literally everyone else can: Suso is a fantastic talent who has a very high ceiling.

    I highly, highly doubt he's being cast aside.

    Ah I was wondering who this was. Well, let's hope that he will groom Suso well, and help him develop to the level we know he's capable of. Fingers crossed also that Suso can remain fit, and that Almeria catch a good season debut, so that there isn't too much pressure on the team and on the gaffer. It will be very interesting to see how he does in this top top league.

    And as said previously, hopefully there is some form of take-back clause if he isn't played regularly enough.

    http://www.theliverpoolword.com/2013/07/exclusive-interview-with-suso-midfielder-talks-of-loans-u-20-world-cup-and-more/

    Liverpool have confirmed that young attacking midfielder Suso is going to be spending the 2013-14 season on loan at Spanish La Liga side Almeria, having made 20 appearances in his debut campaign last term.
    Karl Matchett from The Liverpool Word caught up with Suso to get an exclusive interview with him recently—here’s the complete transcript of what he had to say.

    TLW: Thanks for taking the time to talk Suso. You’re preparing now for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup; do you find it difficult to be training now all summer after a long season?
    Suso: Well the season is obviously long, there are players like myself for example, in England, who had a few days’ holiday, but some of my team mates haven’t had any days off at all. I think when we’re talking about something like a World Cup, holidays just get cancelled and I think it’s one of the nicest things there are.
    TLW: And what do you hope to get out of the World Cup? The experience, the victory…?
    Suso: Look, Spain are the favourites, no? For me, obviously, if we win then all the better, but the excitement is great, and the World Cup, there’s the best teams in the world, and if we do [our things on the pitch] well then I think we’ve got a lot of possibilities.

    TLW: You’re proud to represent Spain at this level…
    Suso: Yes of course, right now Spain have the best international team in the world, with a group of great players, so you have to be happy. As I say, we have to keep working and when you’re here, you want even more.
    TLW: Would you have preferred to be part of the Under-21 squad at the European Championships or here with the Under-20s?
    Suso: The Under-21s as well…the Euros…in the Under-21s are the best players. In the Under-20s in a World Cup…I don’t know. I think a World Cup is a unique thing, I’ve got the chance to play in one now and I don’t know if in the future I could play another one again. The Euros we won last year (2012 Under-19 European Championships), we were champions, so, obviously, if I could I’d go to both but I can’t. In this case I think I’d choose the Under-20s.
    TLW: Because of the success that the Spain national side have had, do you find there’s more expectation on all the Spanish players, regardless of which level they represent the country at?
    Suso: Yes, as I said before, Spain are the favourites and they’re always going to have that expectation as favourites. In Spain, I think we have more pressure than other nations.
    TLW: And do you think that’s fair [for the younger players to bear the same expectation as the seniors]?
    Suso: Well…the senior side is winning everything, they’re the best side there is, and when that happens then so does this [the expectation], in all the big clubs and in this case, at international level. I don’t think it should be any hardship or any work, instead it should serve as a motivation.
    TLW: We’ve seen you playing in a deeper role for Spain than you do for Liverpool, which role do you prefer to play in, and why?
    Suso: I prefer to play in the middle. This season was my first in the Premier League and I’ll play wherever, really, and while I’m playing I don’t care about the position or where I am [on the pitch]. I prefer to play in the middle because I think my footballing characteristics are best suited to playing there, but as well out on the wing I can do well and as I said, as long as I’m playing I don’t have any problem.
    TLW: Speaking of Liverpool, you played 20 times last season but this time we won’t have the Europa League, so what would you consider a success? Playing the same number of games, or maybe a few less…?
    Suso: Well I want to play games. It’s true I’m happy at Liverpool but I what I want is to play. I’ve got right now offers in other places and we’ll talk about whether I have to stay or whether I have to go on loan.
    TLW: On loan though, nothing permanent?
    Suso: No, no, just loan, yes.
    TLW: Are they Premier League sides or in Spain, elsewhere?
    Suso: Yes, I have options in both places.
    TLW: Can we speak about which teams?
    Suso: No, at the moment not. I don’t know what I’ll do, I’m very happy in Liverpool but what I want is to play games.
    TLW: What about the boss, Brendan Rodgers. Do you think you have his confidence to play games and the minutes you want, since Liverpool are going to sign more players?
    Suso: Yes, it’s him who has given me everything this year and I’m very happy. The truth is he’s a very good coach and these things will surely get better.
    TLW: What would say are the parts of your game you have to work on more?
    Suso: Well I’m a young player so I have to work more on everything and that’s why I’m in training every day, and at a club like Liverpool, it’s a good place to improve as a player and when I’m coming here [with the Spain team] it’s also a chance to improve in all aspects. So, as I say, as a player if you have to improve, you have to improve everything.
    TLW: And if you have to leave on loan, would you prefer to stay in the Premier League or would it depend on the team?
    Suso: As I said, it’s not something that I’m…look, I’m happy in Liverpool but if I’ve got to go on loan to play minutes then I don’t know if it would be in England or Spain.
    TLW: That’s great, thanks very much for speaking to me and hope when you’re back with Liverpool you have lots of success and find your place in the team.
    Suso: Thanks!

    Doesn't seem that the interview was too recent--he was just preparing for the U20WC at the time...

    It wasn't, but it gives some insight into his loan. He seemed to have multiple offers and the club chose Almeria.

    I'll tell you now that Sterling is quality. Only going to get better.

    This must mean you absolutely love Suso, which I'm ok with, because I do too.

    Both players will be part of the standard first team in only a couple of years. Both, world class talent.

    Suso is going out on loan only because, in my opinion, he's a cmf. Sterling has a better chance of starting games because he's played out wide, where we have lacked consistently for season after season.

    => Still not happy about Suso going, because I love to see him in a Liverpool shirt. Only terrible management and a serious lack of common sense (or a crazy 20m+ offer) will see him not come back to us (hopefully an injury free) more accomplished player.

    Good to know that he had several offers ready, and that the club made the choice which they deemed the best. Clearly a sign that they care about his development.

    I always worry with a loan that we'll never see them again but hopefully Suso is still very much in Rodgers plans!

    Why is it different?

    Plenty of our youngsters have been farmed off to english clubs on loan with the sole purpose of finding a suitor, not with the intention of bringing them back into the senior squad.

    It all depends on the player. Suso is one of the biggest talents, debatably the biggest, our academy has had since the 90s. He joined at 16 and it was instantly recognisable he was so far ahead of his age group. He's had some slight dips in form but has straightened that out over the past year or so and seems to be steadily improving. He's outgrown the reserves and Rodgers played him 20 odd times in the first team as a teenager last season when he could have quite easily just persisted with the safe option of playing Downing.

    The club and Suso have taken the decision that it'd be best for him to go out to la liga, a league which is inherently more willing to give a player like Suso a chance. What is it that makes people think he'll suffer the same fate as pacheco? Apart from the fact they're both spanish and have gone out on loan to spanish teams.

    Well would it not be better to have Suso stay in England and get a run on games here? We are trying to develop him as a player who will be effective in the English league. Well I hope he does well in Spain and returns ready for 1st team action

    Yes, but he'll get a lot more game time playing for Almeria. Not to mention that he'll likely get game-time against minor league players like CR, Alonso, Xavi, Iniesta and Messi.

    Kelly is the only one I can recall. Spearing won't be around long, will he? Beckham played 5 games for Preston.

    I was really talking about a young LFC player who has gone for a whole season & come back to make an impact. I hope you are proved right but I suspect once he gets back to Spain he won't be back.

    As a club we've been guilty in the past of not utilising loans well enough for me, look at the way Arsenal do it - they've used loans well over the years and it's paid off for them. Think the loan system will become a big thing for us over the next few years as we have a large number of quality youngsters that are just short of the first team.

    Im hoping the reason Suso was sent to a Spanish club and not a premier league club is that we don't have the option of recalling him from fellow premier league clubs if we need to. Really hope he comes back with a years first team experience and not after a few months of rotting on the bench!

    He'll come back as a much experienced 20 yo, but still young to get a regular team spot. But who knows, maybe ready to step up. Think this s a good move.

    Hope Almeria play him in midfield and regurlary so he really kicks on in his best position Imho, this is the guy to replace Alonsos passing in midfield in the future. Out of all the youngsters hes the guy i wanna see in our first team in the future.

    He also played the through ball to Rafita in the box, who then assisted Rodri, for Almeria's first goal.
