Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers demands public apology.

Luis Suarez is facing exile from the Liverpool first team after a furious Brendan Rodgers banned the striker from training according to The Daily Mail.
Rodgers was responding to an article in The Guardian yesterday where Suarez was quoted as having claimed that Liverpool have broken promises to him.
Suarez reportedly sought out the discussion with The Guardian and was keen to express his dissatisfaction at Liverpool’s refusal to sell him to Arsenal.
The want-away striker claims he was promised last summer that he would be allowed to leave the club if they failed to qualify for the Champions League.
That notion has been dismissed by Rodgers, who claims no such promise was made. The Anfield boss has slammed Suarez for showing the club a ‘complete lack of respect’.
Rodgers is insisting that Suarez will not play for the club again unless he makes a public apology. He pointed out how the club have stuck by and supported Suarez in recent seasons despite his various disciplinary problems.
Arsenal continue to be the only club who have made a firm offer for Suarez but have seen their £40,000,001 turned down. The PFA have been called in to determine whether Liverpool’s rejection of the bid is in violation of a clause in the player’s contract.
