Liverpool boss Rodgers blasts Luis Suarez for ‘total disrespect’, forces him to train alone
Brendan Rodgers has accused Liverpool star Luis Suarez of showing ‘total disrespect’ for the club and has told him to train alone.
He also rejected Suarez’s suggestions that a promise to sell him this summer if the club failed to reach the Champions League had been broken.
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.
“There has been total disrespect of the club – a club that has given him everything.
“Obviously the remarks I’ve read are bitterly disappointing – but my job is bigger than that.”
The 26-year-old is now training on his own at the Reds’ Melwood training ground. Reports suggest that this is not in response to Suarez giving interviews about his desire to leave the club, and that he was already training by himself following his can’t-be-bothered demeanour in recent pre-season friendlies.
The Uruguay international is tipped to submit a formal transfer request this week in another attempt to force through a transfer to Arsenal.
