Brendan Rodgers has hit out at Luis Suarez’s comments in The Guardian and the Telegraph.
Brendan Rodgers was understandably furious with Suarez in his post match press conference after the match against Valerenga, where he said, “There were no promises made – categorically none – and no promises broken,”
“The club and his representatives had several conversations and he knew exactly where he was at.
“I think Luis knows the support he’s had at the football club and that’s something that’s been unswerving throughout the whole of last season.”
“Obviously the remarks I’ve read are bitterly disappointing – but my job is bigger than that. My job is to fight and protect the club. The conversations I’ve had with him, he knows I’ve had and they will remain private.”
“I will take strong, decisive action, absolutely. There has been total disrespect of the club – this is a lack of respect of a club that has given him everything. Absolutely everything.”
Suarez has been the subject of two bids from Arsenal, the latter one designed to activate a certain clause, which as it is now known only requires the Reds to start listening to offers that start from £40m and the clause does not state that Suarez will have to be allowed to leave if a bid of over £40m is made, which surely puts the Gunners in a mess.
