Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has questioned why Liverpool did not appeal against Luis Suarez's recent eight-match ban if they believed he was not guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra.
The clash between Suarez and Evra remains an inflammatory subject between the rival clubs, who meet at Old Trafford on Saturday in a match that is likely to see the two players come face to face for the first time since their acrimonious October meeting.
Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish claimed Suarez should never have been suspended in the first place after the Uruguayan made his comeback from the ban against Tottenham on Monday night and Ferguson said: "They've said plenty, haven't they? Why didn't they appeal?"
