The Luis Suarez controversy has attracted criticism in the United States where the press have called for Liverpool's American owners to intervene.

Suarez has again found himself in the spotlight after ignoring United captain Evra's outstretched hand prior to kick-off at Saturday's encounter at Old Trafford. The match was Suarez's first start since completing his eight-match ban for racially abusing French international Evra in the reverse fixture at Anfield in October.

After the game incensed United manager Sir Alex Ferguson branded the striker a "disgrace to Liverpool Football Club" adding that he should never play for them again. In the United States, the New York Times believes Liverpool's Boston-based owners, Fenway Sports Group, need to act in order to 'repair the club's global image'.
