Rodgers insists saga is over
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that the saga surrounding Arsenal and Luis Suarez is now over.
This will be a major blow to Arsenal who were looking to make the Uruguayan their big signing of the summer, the newspaper claims.
Suarez still has five games of his 10-match-ban to fulfil so will spend the time reuniting with players and working on his fitness.
The Anfield boss refused to confirm reports that he has made the 26-year-old apologise to his team-mates.
Rodgers was reported by the newspaper as saying: “The only thing I will say about Luis is that I am very satisfied how everything has been resolved — and now we can move on.
“He is a part of this team and this club. The supporters are a class act here and it is the classic Liverpool way to support the players and the manager.”
Rodgers was speaking after Liverpool’s 1-0 victory over Stoke City on Saturday thanks to a first-half goal from Daniel Sturridge.
Rodgers jokingly added: “Liverpool top of the league”.
Liverpool have new keeper Simon Mignolet to thank for all three points after he saved a late Jonathan Walters penalty to secure a clean sheet.
