Well, you can’t blame a man for trying…
Following Liverpool owner JW Henry’s admission that Luis Suarez did have a £40m release clause, an Arsenal fan has started a petition hoping the FA will force the Reds do the following:
-Release Luis Suarez to Arsenal free of charge.
-Apologise to Arsenal FC.
-Pay Arsenal a £4.5m compensation.
Arsenal met Suarez’s release clause last summer, but Liverpool simply refused to do business, with JW Henry claiming that contracts in football “don’t mean a lot in England”, BBC Sport reported.
Despite the obvious tongue in cheek nature of the report, #FreeSuarez has begun to trend on Twitter today, with Liverpool fans taking a particularly dim view of the news…

Just got in to see this #FreeSuarez nonsense. I’m not even going to talk about it because it is exactly that, nonsense.

#FreeSuarez from the club that he willingly commited his long term future to.

From this moment, I’m afraid I can’t show any affection towards Arsenal on here ever again. I can’t be paired with the likes of #FreeSuarez.
