Luiz Suarez’s friend and national team mate Edison Cavani has blasted Liverpool over their treatment of the Uruguayan. Cavani took on Liverpool’s manager Brendan Rodgers on the speech the Liverpool manager made in regards to Suarez lacking loyalty after the striker went public with his intentions to leave the Anfield club.
“We have a standard at Liverpool that I will fight for my life to retain,” Rodgers said.
“There will never be any player or person bigger than the club.
“In terms of the remarks that were made, this is a football club that has always worked in a certain way.
“The Liverpool Way is all about a club with ambition, a club that strives to be the very best, a club that is about commitment. That means that everyone is committed to the cause of fighting for the shirt.
“It’s also about dignity and being dignified in how you speak about the club, on and off the
field, and it’s about unity.
“Those are the four values that run through my mind when I think about Liverpool. Those are the values we will always retain. If anyone steps outside of that standard, I will deal with it. That’s something that we’ll do.”
Rodgers talking to journalists about Suarez’s interview to the Guardian and Telegraph.
This comments have however irked Cavani who feels Rodgers have no rights to talk about loyalty or the lack of it.
“The Liverpool coach can talk about loyalty and disrespect, but maybe he needs to look up what it means.
“Luis had the chance last year to join a big club like Juventus, who went on to win the league in Italy.
“But, instead, he chose to stay and fight with Liverpool. Now, that’s what you call loyalty.
“I’ve known about his agreement with Liverpool and understood that he would be leaving, if they were not playing in the Champions League.”
