Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has responded to striker Luis Suarez's comments about his future - and has reacted badly to what the Uruguayan had to say for himself.
All summer Suarez has been revealing how much he wants to leave Liverpool, with the striker determined to play Champions League football this season.
The Liverpool star is now intent on leaving Anfield and favours a move to Premier League rivals Arsenal after the north London-based club have shown strong interest in the Uruguayan, but after recent comments made in the press, Rodgers has put his foot down and verbally attacked the Uruguayan.
Rodgers has forced Suarez to train by himself as punishment and has also told him he will never get his move to Arsenal.
"There were no promises made - categorically none - and no promises broken. The club and his representatives had several conversations and he knew exactly where he was at," Rodgers told reporters. "I will take strong, decisive action. There has been total disrespect of the club - this is a club that is historically one of the biggest in the world and has given him everything; absolutely everything.
"We first of all need to assess where (the situation) is. Things have been said that are derogatory against the football club, his team-mates and the supporters.
"There's a few bridges to cross before that (playing for Liverpool) can happen again. It's about respect. This is one of the most iconic football clubs in the world, you can't disrespect it. That's something I will ensure before anything happens in the future."
