Dalglish refuses to accept Suarez punishment

Kenny Dalglish has still refused to accept the ban imposed on Liverpool forward Luis Suarez, claiming that the public do not know the whole story, The Daily Mail reports.

An independent regulatory commission released a report condemning Suarez’s racist actions in the October 15th draw with Manchester United at Anfield. The Liverpool striker racially abused Patrice Evra, calling the French defender a ‘negro’ seven times in two minutes. Suarez has subsequently been banned for eight games and one of them was last night’s defeat against Manchester City.

The Reds chose not to appeal against the decision, but despite the commission’s report, Dalglish claims that the full story has not been published. The Liverpool boss failed to state exactly what the report failed to contain, because he did not want to face further retribution from the Football Association over his words.

Dalglish said: ‘We have made a statement and I think it is there for everyone to read. Luis has made a brilliant statement and we stand by him. There are a lot of things we’d like to say and a lot of things we could say, but we don’t want to get ourselves in trouble. We know what has gone on, we know what is not in the report and that is important for us. I am not prepared and I cannot say, I cannot go any further’.
