Rodgers: Suarez 'Totally Understands' Liverpool's Position

MOST COMMENTED

In an interview, Brendan Rodgers claims that Liverpool striker Luis Suarez “totally understands” the club’s insistence on keeping him.

Meanwhile, Suarez is an odds-on favorite to sign for Arsenal.

"Luis is happy. He totally understands the club's point of view,” the Liverpool boss told the Liverpool Echo.  "He's in a difficult position in terms of not being able to play because of his suspension - he will sit out the first six games and he will miss playing football.” Suarez still has six games to serve from the ten-game ban he received for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in a game last season.

While Liverpool management has always maintained that it will not sell its star player, both Rodgers and managing director Ian Ayre have said the club is owed a debt of gratitude for standing by Suarez during two onerous suspensions, the first of which was an eight-game ban in 2011/12 for using a racial slur against Manchester United’s Patrice Evra.
