Brendan Rodgers accuses Arsenal of lacking class

Posted on August 05, 2013 by Crippy Cooke

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has recently criticised the way Arsenal have acted in their pursuit for Liverpool’s controversial striker Luis Suarez.

After manager Arsene Wenger made a bid just £1 over his £40M release clause, which forced Liverpool to inform Suarez of the interest, Rodgers was not amused.

‘I have to admit I was surprised by their bid of £40m and £1. I always associated Arsenal as a club with class. They may be playing a game, but we will just move on and do our own work. We do not want to sell. The two bids are nowhere near where what Luis would be worth.’

Surprisingly this summer, Wenger has been very outspoken about wanting to sign the Uruguayan international, and hasn’t denied making the two bids to sign him. Rodgers clearly feels the Arsenal boss is making a mockery of the side by making a bid Liverpool would never consider accepting.

The transfer saga all started after the 26-year old expressed a desire to leave following an off the ball incident in which he bit a player and was given a 10-game suspension. Suarez stated he wanted out of Liverpool, and out of the Premier League.

However, he seemingly made a U-turn on the decision weeks later, but could still be leaving Liverpool to join another Premier League side. The saga looks set to go on after Wenger admitted he has no plans to give up on trying to sign the striker.
