Suarez Biting His Tongue On Transfer Speculation
According to the Metro, Arsenal target Luis Suarez has been keeping quiet over his proposed move to the Emirates Stadium, after last week’s public rant about apparent broken promises by his current club.
Suarez has been making the headlines once again for all the wrong reasons, and is being criticized by former players and experts alike. The striker revealed an apparent promise made to him by the club which stated an allowance for the player to leave in case the club did not manage to qualify for the UEFA Champions League last season. Suarez said that he promised the club to give the objective his best shot, and it is fair to say that he did, with 30 goals in all competitions for the Reds. Despite his best efforts, the club finished in a modest 7th place, leading to speculation about his future. There were reports earlier in the summer about Real Madrid’s interest, which were well received by the Uruguayan. However, with the Spanish giants shifting focus to Gareth Bale, Arsenal entered the equation with two hefty bids which were quickly rejected by Liverpool.
The 26-year old started his career at native club Nacional in 2003 as a youth player, before playing a full season professionally in 2005. Suarez then made the big decision to move to Europe, where Dutch club Groningen gave him the opportunity to impress, and he sure made the most of his chance. Ajax then came calling for the striker in 2007, and Suarez was associated with the club for four seasons, scoring 81 goals in 110 appearances. This feat, along with an excellent showing at the World Cup in South Africa, was enough to convince Liverpool of his credentials, and he made the switch to Anfield in 2011, and has had a successful stint so far, although filled with controversy.
Suarez is currently on international duty for his country, and has reportedly told his team mates not to comment further about his future, after his own revelations last week got him in trouble. Brendan Rodgers confirmed to the press that the striker will not be allowed to play until he apologizes to his fellow players and fans.
We will have to wait and see how long Suarez is able to bite his tongue for but it is unlikely he will keep silent if the window shuts without him making a move away from Liverpool.
