Rodgers: Suarez 'Totally Understands' Liverpool's Position

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.
