Dec. 16 (UPI) -- A failed bid for Liverpool and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez doesn't seem to have deterred Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger as the Frenchman remains and admirer.

"We all dream about having players like that," said Wenger about Suarez.

"I think that every defender in England hates playing against him," he added.

"He has a strong, provocative personality. From the information I gathered on him it appears that on a day-to-day level he is really easy to work with.

"Also that he's respectful, he loves training, he's an angel. He turns into a demon when he's on the pitch."

Suarez has experienced behavioral problems on the pitch and has been suspended numerous times for various offenses including biting and offensive remarks. However off the pitch he is known as a quiet, family man.

Suarez captained his side against Tottenham Sunday as regular captain Steven Gerrard was not playing.
