Liverpool, Suarez at Ugly Impasse

MOST COMMENTED

It seems that Luis Suarez and Liverpool have arrived at a nasty impasse: while club owner John Henry has given an “unequivocal” assurance that he will not sell Suarez to Arsenal, coach Brendan Rodgers has once again reiterated that the Uruguayan will not play for Liverpool again until he apologizes and visibly changes his attitude. According to the Daily Mail, Suarez maintains that the Liverpool manager promised to let him join a Champions League club at the end of the season if Liverpool did not qualify for the competition. In other words, no apology from Suarez is forthcoming.

Meanwhile, Rodgers, who denies that he made any such promise to Suarez, insists that his star player will continue to train by himself until he apologizes to the club and visibly changes his attitude. "There has been a lot said and a lot reported, and we have made a stance, as a club and as a manager, of the commitment and the standards required,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s official Web site regarding the matter. "If you don't have that commitment, and those standards, then you won't play. It's as simple as that.”

He added: "If we have got to sit and wait, then so be it. But this is a club that has got great values, and we hope that the situation can be resolved amicably, and I am sure it will be…So until I get that assurance that we are going to get nothing but 100% commitment, then there will be no solution."
