Luis Suárez’s Liverpool Future in Doubt Despite Apology For Bite Attack: The Nightly EPL

suarez bites ivanovic Luis Suárezs Liverpool Future in Doubt Despite Apology For Bite Attack: The Nightly EPL

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says that no Liverpool footballer is irreplaceable after Luis Suarez bit Branislav Ivanovic during Liverpool’s 2-2 draw against Chelsea on Sunday. Suarez later apologized for his actions.

Suarez not only faces a possible suspension from The FA after manager Kevin Friend missed the incident. Plus, Suarez faces possible punishment from his club.

Here’s what Rodgers said regarding the situation:

“It doesn’t matter who, players are always replaceable no matter how good they think they are. That is how football works. Of course there are wonderful talents here we’ve seen at this club and others over many years. If you ever lose a player that you think you cannot replace, the next one still comes along. The standards at this football club have been met for many years and that’s why it is the worldwide institution that it is. The history of this club is about respect and how people are treated. And that is something that will always be maintained here and will always be long after I am gone.”

What do you think should happen to Luis Suarez? Should Liverpool look for an opportunity to ship the player out in the summer so they can get someone who is less of a liability and more of a proven goalscorer? Share your opinion in the comments section below.
