Liverpool owner John W Henry has insisted the club has no intention of selling Luis Suarez, the
Henry was speaking at a meeting of the Liverpool Supporters Club in Oslo, ahead of the Reds’ friendly with Valarenga on Wednesday evening, and also confirmed neither he nor his business partner, Tom Werner, were considering selling the club.
“I don’t know why people ask us if we are selling the club or the best players, because we are not. We like to buy stuff, not to sell,” Henry said. It is not the first time the American has commented on the chances of Liverpool letting Suarez leave – he previously tweeted “What are they smoking at Arsenal?” after the Gunners offered £1 over £40m for the Uruguayan.
Suarez has not made the trip to Norway after limping out of training with a foot injury and remaining in England for further examination. There was speculation – denied by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers – that Suarez had refused to play in any more pre-season friendlies for the club, and he was seen driving himself away from Liverpool’s training ground.
A number of Liverpool first team players have stayed behind due to injury, however, with Rodgers missing Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel and Glen Johnson, who have all been carrying knocks from previous pre-season friendlies.
