Suarez returns to first-team training with Liverpool
After being told to train alone by manager Brendan Rodgers, striker Luis Suarez has returned to first-team training with his Liverpool teammates after apologising for his actions this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
Throughout the summer, Suarez has attempted to force a move away from Anfield, and publically declared his intentions to leave. Initially he said that he would be excited at the prospect of moving to Spanish giants Real Madrid, before Liverpool’s Premier League rivals Arsenal made two bids.
The Uruguayan went on to claim that he had an agreement with Liverpool that he could leave if the club did not qualify for the Champions League for this season. Despite their failure to do so, however, Rodgers and club owner John Henry are remaining adamant that the 26-year-old is not for sale and denied any such agreement.
Despite his return to training, Suarez will not be available for the first six games of the new season - which begins on Saturday as Liverpool take on Stoke City - as he still has six matches to serve of his 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
