Brendan Rodgers insists that Luis Suarez will have to apologise for his recent behaviour before being let back into Liverpool’s squad, Sky Sports reports.

The striker has been told to train on his own by Rodgers due his recent comments about wanting to leave Anfield and also his lack of commitment during pre-season.

Suarez is desperate to move to Arsenal and is disappointed that Liverpool are unwilling to sell him as he believed that the club promised to let him leave if a club in Champions League offered them over £35 million.

Liverpool have insisted all summer that Suarez won’t be sold, with owner John W Henry stating that their is no chance of him being allowed to move to the Gunners as they will be one of Liverpool’s main rivals this season.

Rodgers believes that Suarez will accept the situation soon but also thinks that the striker needs to apologise before re-joining his team-mates.

“Initially there will be a recognition that [there needs to be] an apology to his team-mates and the club,” said Rodgers when asked what Suarez needed to do next”.

“I have seen him over a period of time I know it is not the Luis Suarez we know and I have to protect the fans and the players because they deserve more than that”.

Suarez was considering handing in a transfer request to Liverpool but this seems unlikely as the Reds have already said that they won’t sell him even if he goes down that road.
