Former defender thinks controversial striker may
Retired Liverpool centre back Jamie Carragher believes that troubled striker Luis Suarez could still stay at the club this summer, talkSPORT reports.
The 26-year-old has suggested that he could head for the exit an Anfield citing his treatment in the press as a reason for wanting to leave and claiming that his love of the club would not be enough to make him want to stay. The odds for Luis Suarez to stay at the Merseyside club are low and putting a bet on the Uruguayan being in the Anfield side, when Liverpool takes on Stoke City in their opening Premier League fixture, is a brave thing to do. You can actually check with one of the more reputable online sportsbooks to see the available odds for this and the other Soccer teams as well.
However, manager Brendan Rodgers has stated that the Uruguayan international is not for sale and with no reports of unrest in the camp, Carragher, who ended his 20-year association with the club last month believes it would be wrong to suggest that a move away is definitely on the cards.
“I think he might stay,” he told ESPN.
“Some big clubs will be interested in him because he is such a top player and that is something we have to accept.
“We can’t complain about that, we bought him off Ajax.
“He signed a new contract last summer and he has a few years left and hopefully we can keep him.
“He is very important. He was probably the best player in the Premier League last season and you want to be keeping your best players, which is what he is.”
