Suarez and Dalglish make apologies following handshake row

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish and striker Luis Suarez have apologised for their part in the handshake row between Suarez and Patrice Evra, BBC Sport reports.

The Liverpool forward refused to shake hands with Evra before Liverpool’s 2-1 loss with Manchester United and has caused outrage from various forms of the media. Suarez was banned for eight matches for racially abusing Evra in the league meeting at Anfield earlier this season. The Uruguayan released a statement apologising for his actions and admits that he did the wrong thing.

‘I have spoken with the manager since the game at Old Trafford and I realise I got things wrong. I have not only let (Dalglish) down, but also the club and what it stands for and I’m sorry. I made a mistake and I regret what happened. I should have shaken Patrice Evra’s hand before the game and I want to apologise for my actions. I would like to put this whole issue behind me and concentrate on playing football’, Suarez said.

Dalglish was also involved in a heated debate with a Sky Sports interviewer following the game on Saturday and the Liverpool boss has apologised for what happened. The Scotsman said: ‘All of us have a responsibility to represent this club in a fit and proper manner. That applies equally to me as Liverpool manager. When I went on TV after yesterday’s game, I did not conduct myself in a way befitting of a Liverpool manager during that interview and I’d like to apologise for that’.
