Brendan Rodgers declined to answer questions about Luis Suarez when questioned earlier today.
The Suarez saga has been one of the most talked about transfers this summer. He has made it clear he wants to leave Anfield to play Champions League football and Arsenal are the only club to have made a bid for him. Liverpool are adamant they wont sell the striker and that’s their final word.
It looked to have worked as Uruguayan newspaper El Observador suggested the striker had announced he would stay at Liverpool after an interview with the striker while he was on international duty.
Liverpool were quick to deny they had received word on Suarez’s latest words, while the player himself also rubbished the reports.
“I didn’t say that, maybe someone else did and the main thing is that I am here now with the national team.”
The player is determined to get a move away from Liverpool, something he feels he is owed due to an agreement reached last summer. Rodgers has refused to budge on negotiations.
“From our perspective, there’s been a standpoint within the club and myself of where it was at – and that hasn’t changed.”
“There’s nothing to be said that hasn’t already been said … I’m sure people are fed up listening about it to be honest.”
“The players that have been working ever so hard over the course of the last few months, out of respect for them, I want to only speak about them.”
It’s becoming increasingly apparent that Rodgers needs to sell Suarez. He has claimed Suarez to be disrespectful, ordered him to train alone and has said he doesn’t want Suarez to undo the good work of the rest of the team. The only thing Rodgers can do to solve all of that is sell him. If they keep him, he will carry on the way he is now and undermine their whole season and it will be Rodgers’ fault for no selling him.
