Suarez could leave Liverpool without Champions League football, fears Rush

Liverpool legend Ian Rush believes the club must clinch a place in the Champions League in order to retain Luis Suarez, the Daily Mail has reported, with former Wales international Rush believing a world record fee could tempt Suarez away from Anfield.

Suarez scored 19 goals before New Year’s Day, helping the Reds into contention for the title - but two defeats over the festive period saw Brendan Rodgers side go from first to fifth, outside the Champions League places.


And Rush is concerned that if Liverpool are not back in the Champions League next season, a club that is will activate a release clause he understands is part of Suarez’s recently-signed new contract.


Speaking to TuttoSport, Rush said: “If we don't qualify for the Champions League he can leave, provided a club make an offer according to the player's value. When we renewed Luis' contract, we put in a clause of £120m. If Gareth Bale went to Real Madrid for £86m, why should we not ask more for Suarez?


Rush is Liverpool’s all-time leading goal scorer, with 346 in 660 games across two spells at the club. His first period on Merseyside came between 1980 and 1987, when he joined from Chester City and left for Juventus. He returned to Liverpool after a year in Italy and remained until 1996, playing for Leeds and Newcastle, among others, before retiring in 2000.
