Suarez refusing Rodgers’ demand to apologise to Liverpool teammates

Luis Suarez will not apologise to his Liverpool teammates for his conduct this summer, the Daily Mirror has reported, despite manager Brendan Rodgers insisting the striker must make amends before he can return to the fold at Anfield.

Suarez has made plain his desire to leave the Reds this summer, claiming the club reneged on an agreement to let him leave for a Champions League side. Liverpool insist there was no agreement and that Suarez’s contract does not include a provision to that end, but Suarez insists he has been let down by Rodgers and feels there is no way back for him at Liverpool because of it.

Rodgers has made Suarez train away from the first team of late because of the perceived disruptive behaviour of the Uruguayan, and will not admit Suarez back to the first team set-up unless he publically and privately says sorry. “There needs to be an apology to his team-mates and to the club and once we get that commitment that he is ready then we will have the player we have always had,” Rodgers said.

But Suarez still hopes to join Arsenal – and Gunners manager Arsene Wenger wants to hold peace talks with the Liverpool hierarchy in an attempt to ease through the transfer. Liverpool have repeatedly insisted Suarez is not for sale, however, with owner John W. Henry claiming that selling Suarez to Arsenal would be “ludicrous”.
