Liverpool remain resolute amid Suarez unrest

Liverpool are reportedly furious with unsettled striker Luis Suarez and his blatant attempts to engineer a move away from Anfield, according to The Mirror.

The Uruguayan international recently claimed that a move away from England would be understandable due to the poor treatment he receives from the British press, and admitted a move to the reportedly interested Real Madrid would be difficult to turn down.

Liverpool have shown fierce loyalty to the 26-year-old despite a tumultuous stay at the club, which has seen him receive not one but two hefty bans for his conduct.

He was initially banned for eight games after allegedly racially abusing Man United defender Patrice Evra, and is presently serving a 10-game suspension after having bitten Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in April.

The club’s patience appears to have finally run out, however, issuing a statement to the tune that Suarez is not for sale and will be fully expected to honour his contract at Anfield – a contract that Suarez himself declared he would be happy to see out, just before the reported interest from Spain.

The only likely scenario that would see Liverpool allow Suarez to depart is by forcing him to hand in an official transfer request, which would mean avoiding severance payments on his contract and also removes the requirement of passing on a chunk of the transfer fee to the player.
