Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers thinks that Luis Suarez will accept that he isn’t leaving Anfield this summer and have a successful season for the Reds, Sky Sports reports.
Suarez has said several times this summer that he wants to leave Liverpool to play for a club that is in the Champions League, with Arsenal interested in bringing the striker to the Emirates.
Arsenal have had two bids for Suarez rejected by Liverpool and the striker is unhappy about this as he believed that the club had agreed to sell him if a club in the Champions League made a move for him.
Due to his outspoken comments and recently lacklustre performances in training, Suarez has been told to train on his own by Rodgers.
Despite the current situation, the Liverpool manager is confident that Suarez will realise that he is not leaving and get back to scoring goals for the Reds.
“Luis is training on his own and he understands totally where we’re coming from,” Rodgers said.
“It’s been a difficult period for him but it’s my job to protect the group. Once he’s back with the spirit he’ll rejoin the group”.
“We’re quite calm. The club is in control of the situation. We’ve got no inclination to sell and we’ve been strong on that”.
“Luis has fought for his life for Liverpool. There will come a point where he’ll recognise the club is not going to sell and then he goes onto the pitch and he’ll give 100 per cent”.
Suarez will miss the start of the season anyway as he is currently in the middle of a 10 game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
