Compatriot sticks it to Liverpool boss.
Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani has jumped to the defence of his international striker partner Luis Suarez by insisting that Brendan Rodgers should “go and look up what loyalty means,” Sky Sports reports.
Suarez has made it clear that he wants to leave the Anfield club this summer with both Arsenal and Real Madrid interested in taking him away from Merseyside, and he has been claiming that promises were made to let him leave should the club fail to qualify for the Champions League this season.
Liverpool have denied that there is such a clause involved in his contract having previously rejected a bid of £40 million + £1 from Arsenal to active this mysterious clause.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has forced the 27-year-old to train on his own and has demanded that he apologises to his teammates and the fans for his recent lack of morals that fall in line with the club’s.
However, Cavani has stood by his international striker partner by claiming that he remained loyal to Liverpool last summer when he could have joined Juventus instead.
“The Liverpool coach can talk about loyalty and disrespect but maybe he needs to look up what it means,” Cavani is quoted as saying.
“Luis had the chance last year to join Juventus, who went on to win the league in Italy.
“But he chose to stay with Liverpool. That’s what you call loyalty.
“I’ve known about his agreement with Liverpool and understood that he would be leaving if they were not playing in the Champions League.”
