Liverpool take firm stance on Arsenal target Luis Suarez

Posted on August 09, 2013 by Crippy Cooke

Following the Luis Suarez interview, published on both the Telegraph and the Guardian originally, which saw him criticising Liverpool and manager Brendan Rodgers for not allowing him a move when he was led to believe a release clause existed in his contract, the club’s owner John W Henry has revealed he will not be sold this summer.

The 26-year old has been forced to train on his own as a result for the recent comments, but is not for sale at any price.

Suarez’ agent has been blamed by both Arsenal and Liverpool for supplying false information which has led to a standoff between both clubs.

Arsenal recently made an offer of £40M+£1- which they were told would trigger the release clause in his contract, allowing him to agree personal terms with the Gunners.

However, such clause did not exist and Arsenal and manager Arsene Wenger were left to look red-faced amid heavy criticism from Rodgers and Henry for the way they have conducted their business for the Uruguayan international.

Wenger, 63, is reportedly furious at being misled about his summer target, and now faces the prospect of having his time completely wasted this summer as Suarez was the side’s main transfer target.

    Unlike Crippy Cooke I don’t think Wenger wasted his time chasing Luis Suarez. It was good he tried and you never know there is still chance Suarez could join Arsenal. Even if Suarez doesn’t come I don’t think it will be doom and gloom for Arsenal. The transfer window is still open so we can get another striker. Secondly, the squad we have is more than capable of doing a good job. Lest we forget many of our forward top players i.e. Podolski, Giroud and Cazorla just joined the club last season and yet managed each more than ten goals. This means that we expect much better performances from them this season. These players came from outside the EPL and to have managed those many goals is an indication of their great quality and a promise of what we should expect this season. I don’t doubt that Giroud and Podolski can each get 20+ goals because they have ever done so. Similarly Walcott is a rising star who will only improve this season. As will Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Cazorla, Wilshere and Ramsey. Our only concern should only be on beefing up numbers as a lot of deadwood and young players left the club. Once we have a full squad we should be able to mount a serious challenge. I don’t agree with many of our emotional fans who think that simply because Spurs has been buying new players they must be a better team. Lest we forget Spurs buys not less than three players every season but has that made them better? Football is a team spot and the more you change players the more difficult it is to make a team.
