According to daily mail Suarez was seen joking and laughing with his Liverpool team mates, after he was welcomed back into the fold after he apologized for his behaviour over the last couple of weeks. Brendan Rodgers has declared himself ‘very satisfied with how everything has been resolved’.
Although, Suarez has now made peace with the Anfield club, but hasn’t declared his intention of staying, yet. The Uruguayan arrived at Anfield at 11.30am and a few minutes later, wearing a Liverpool shirt, he walked around the pitch with his daughter Delfina in his arms.
The few Liverpool fans already in their seats greeted him warmly, though he endured a few taunts from Stoke supporters over alleged acts of ‘diving’ in the past.
It was a successful and spontaneous charm offensive, though — and completely unforeseen. We don’t choreograph things like that,” said a Liverpool spokesman.
Suarez watched the match with his family from a players’ box across the pitch from the dressing room.
After Liverpool’s 1-0 victory, Rodgers wasn’t surprised that Suarez had been greeted so warmly by the fans he has tormented with his previously declared desire to move on.
Asked if this was a positive development, Rodgers said, ‘Yeah. He’s part of our team; he’s part of our club. The supporters are a class act here and always support the players and manager.’
Rodgers refused to confirm or deny that Suarez had apologised — the condition upon which he was supposed to have returned to the group.
The manager concluded, “I’m very satisfied with how everything has been resolved and now we are looking to the future.”
Arsenal now face a huge fight to prise the Uruguayan from the Reds, and have been reported as looking at other targets. The Daily Mail reported that the Gunners have been quoted £25 million for Michu, by Swansea, while Manchester City have warned Arsenal off from pursuing City’s Bosnian striker, Edin Dzeko. The Daily Mirror reports that Arsenal have made a new enquiry for Wayne Rooney, who did not join in the celebration for two of United’s goals against Swansea, which he assisted.
