Irishman feels mercurial attacker’s recent comments mean that he can never feature for Brendan Rodgers’s side again.
Former Liverpool front man Robbie Keane believes that want-away Reds attacker Luis Suarez has more than likely played his last game for the Merseyside club, according to exclusive reports on talkSPORT.
The controversial Uruguay international has been one of the main topics of debate in the summer transfer window so far after declaring his wish to depart Anfield in order to join Spanish giants Real Madrid next season.
The 26-year-old, who has been at Liverpool since signing from Eredivisie outfit Ajax in January 2011, made his feelings quite clear while away on international duty with his country at the Fifa Confederations Cup last month.
However, as yet the Reds have not received any offer whatsoever from the Santiago Bernabeu for Suarez, who the club’s American owners the Fenway Sports Group (FSG) value at upwards of £40m.
One bid FSG have had for their prize asset, who has registered an eye-catching 51 goals and 24 assists for Liverpool in just 96 matches in all competitions for the club, has come from Premier League rivals Arsenal, although at £30m it fell way short of their valuation of their player.
Either way, Republic of Ireland international Keane, who spent a brief six-month period at Anfield in the 2008-09 season, feels that Suarez’s position with the Reds has now become untenable.
“Luis Suarez has been fantastic but I think there is no question that he will probably leave,” said the Los Angeles Galaxy forward.
“If you come out with the statements that he has been then I think it’s going to be hard for him to stay at Liverpool.
“Whatever the reason is behind him wanting to leave, he’s at a massive club like Liverpool so where would he go from there? I’m really not sure.”
