Football: Rodgers blasts Suarez for lack of Liverpool respect
LONDON, England (AFP) - Luis Suarez's uneasy relationship with Liverpool reached breaking point on Wednesday when manager Brendan Rodgers accused the wantaway striker of lacking dignity over his public campaign to engineer a move away from Anfield.
The controversial Uruguayan striker claimed that Liverpool had gone back on an agreement written into his contract, signed last August, which obliges them to sell to any club offering more than £40 million (S$78.5 million).
Arsenal are reported to have bid £40,000,001 for the player in a bid to trigger the release clause.
"The Liverpool way is all about a club with ambition, a club that strives to be the very best, a club that is about commitment - that means that everyone is committed to the cause of fighting for the shirt," said Rodgers.
