Liverpool risk looking stupid by selling Suarez, says Carragher

Liverpool cannot now sell Luis Suarez, believes former stalwart defender Jamie Carragher, after comments made by owner John W. Henry. The Daily Telegraph has reported Carragher as saying that if Suarez was allowed to leave following the owner’s words, the Reds would be left “looking stupid”.

Both Henry and manager Brendan Rodgers have insisted repeatedly that Suarez is not for sale, with Henry questioning the logic behind selling a key player to a rival, and Rodgers demanding Suarez apologise to his teammates for his conduct over the summer. Suarez has repeatedly revealed his unhappiness at Anfield and was recently made to train away from the first team as a result of his behaviour.

And Carragher, who retired at the end of last season after a career spent with Liverpool, believes the club’s stance has been so emphatic that there is no room for a change of mind as it would be too much of a climb down. “I expect him to stay at Liverpool now,” he said.

I think if you come out as owner and say that, and then something happens, you make yourself look stupid. I’m glad he has done it and I think everyone in football should be glad he has done it. It is maybe a message for players,” the ex-England international continued.

Despite Suarez’s public campaign to be allowed to leave Merseyside, Carragher can see a way for the Uruguay international to return to the fold. “ He’s the best player,” Carragher admitted. “It probably all affects supporters more who absolutely love the club.

Players come and go at different times; we are all probably selfish, we think about our own situation. I think a lot of them will be probably focused on getting themselves ready for the start of the league,” he continued.

I’m sure they will want Luis to stay because it gives them more chance of being successful.” Carragher went on to say that playing well and scoring goals will be enough for Suarez to win back the support of his teammates, if not the fans.
