LONDON (AFP) - Former Liverpool stalwart Jamie Carragher has described Luis Suarez's attempts to engineer a move away from the Premier League club as "laughable".

Earlier this week, Suarez accused Liverpool of breaking promises by preventing him from joining EPL rivals Arsenal, but manager Brendan Rodgers has refuted that and forced the Uruguayan to train on his own.

"It didn't surprise me that Brendan Rodgers has made him train on his own," wrote Carragher in Saturday's edition of The Daily Mail. "I never thought Luis would down tools in the way Fernando Torres did when he wanted to leave Liverpool - his attitude over the final 18 months became progressively worse - but now Suarez has given me reason to think again.

"In the darkest times, we wore T-shirts to show we were standing alongside him, even if it was ill-advised. So it is laughable to hear he is unhappy with Liverpool for not letting him join Arsenal."
