Liverpool are set to hold talks with Manchester United in an attempt to restore good relations following the racism row between the two clubs, The
Reds striker Luis Suarez has been charged with racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra and received an eight game ban. Suarez’s first away game will come at Old Trafford and should expect a volley of abuse from the United faithful. Liverpool are hoping to restore the strained relations between the two over the racism row and defuse any tension. Both sides are long-term rivals, but have enjoyed a cordial off-field relationship in recent years.
Liverpool’s top executives will talk with the top chiefs at United and the club have not ruled out owner John W. Henry talking to the Glazer family. A spokesman for the Fenway Sports Group leader declined to comment on the Suarez incident and just stated that he stands behind the players and manager over their stance for the Uruguayan forward.
Henry’s statement said: ‘The FA and the panel chose to consistently and methodically accept and embrace arguments leading to a set of conclusions that found Mr. Suarez to ‘probably’ be guilty while in the same manner deciding to completely dismiss the testimony that counted their overall suppositions’.
