Suarez 'misled' club over handshake

Published Add your comment

Liverpool claim Luis Suarez misled the club after indicating to them he would shake hands with Manchester United defender Patrice Evra prior to Saturday's game before refusing to do so on the pitch.

The Uruguayan, who was banned for eight matches after racially abusing Evra during the league game between the sides at Anfield in October, had been expected to shake hands with the Frenchman but failed to do so.

Suarez has apologised for his actions and Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre has now also released a statement criticising Suarez's actions. He told "We are extremely disappointed Luis Suarez did not shake hands with Patrice Evra before yesterday's game. The player had told us beforehand that he would, but then chose not to do so."
