Rodgers insists saga is over

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that the saga surrounding Arsenal and Luis Suarez is now over.

The Arsenal target has, according to the Mirror, made peace with the club and is now looking to move forward.

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.

No apology

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.”

Good start

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.
