Luis Suarez needs to apologise to Liverpool fans for his behaviour this summer, according to former Anfield star John Aldridge.
In his Liverpool Echo column, Aldridge praised Liverpool owner John W Henry and manager Brendan Rodgers for refusing to cave in to Suarez’s demands for a move away.
Arsenal had a bid of £40,000,001 for the Uruguay international turned down earlier this summer and Henry insisted the club would not be selling Suarez under any circumstances.
Despite Suarez going public about his desire to join Arsenal in an interview with The Guardian, it now appears as though Liverpool have stood firm and he will not be moving to Emirates Stadium.
Now that Suarez appears to be staying at Anfield, Aldridge wants him to apologise to the fans that have been cheering his name throughout numerous dramas in his Liverpool career.
“Before Suarez makes his comeback from suspension he needs to go on LFC TV or speak to the fans via the ECHO and say sorry to them for the way he has treated the club,” he said.
“I’m delighted that Suarez is still our player after a summer-long saga when he has repeatedly tried to get himself a move away from Anfield.
“I’ve got to say the club have handled it brilliantly and I take my hat off to owner John W Henry and manager Brendan Rodgers for the way they have refused to be bullied into a deal.
“Rodgers is obviously convinced that Suarez is ready to knuckle down after allowing him back to work with his team-mates following a week spent training on his own.”
