Suarez declines rest bight

2011-09-08 13:37

Liverpool’s top-scorer this season, Luis Suarez has told manager, Kenny Dalglish that he wants to play every match for the Anfield club, despite having only one-week’s rest since the end of last season.

The 24-year-old Suarez hardly missed a game in the past two years for Ajax Amsterdam and now Liverpool, having infamously helped Uruguay to the semi-finals of the 2010 World Cup before forming an integral part of the successful Uruguayan team which lifted the Copa America title in July, sandwiched between three league seasons.

Despite this, the tricky forward turned down the opportunity gain a breather and sit out Uruguay’s international friendly against Ukraine, and travelled to Kharkiv and played the entire 90 minutes.

Even when Dalglish tried to take matters into his own hands, by placing Suarez on Liverpool’s substitute’s bench in their trip to Arsenal, the Uruguayan was not impressed and clearly showed it a week later after the Scotsman substituted him in Liverpool’s 3-1 win against Bolton at Anfield.

“I want to play in all the games I can for Liverpool,” he told British newspaper, the Daily Mirror.

“I don't want any rest at all. Despite only having that week's training before playing again, I'm only 24 so I felt good. I was glad to get back to training at Melwood as I had been missing that whole atmosphere around the training ground and wanted to get back to playing at Anfield.”

    What an inspiration, this guy is the find of the season, we sold lady boy for 50 million quid and bought Suarez for 18 million quid, what a deal that was, best buy in the EPL for a long time, I don't say the word legend easily but this guy has the credentials to become a Liverpool legend, sheer class.

      Man U at last a true comment from you, yes every Liverpool buy is fantastic, what a team KK and his team have built, nothing funny about disliking lady boy, he left the sanctuary of Liverpool to join a rich Russian and his bunch of mercenaries, of course he was loved when he was at Anfield look at his scoring record during his time there, must be regretting that little move, and AjAxxx I'm living in the present now my friend the future is looking a bit rosy for all us Liverpool supporters after twenty years of suffering under bad owners and poor coaches, now we got the best manager and fantastic owners, and we've got our Cappie nearly fit again, you guys forget just how good Stevie G is, unfortunately for you he will remind you 1st hand next month, I predict that it will be 6 wins out of the last eight games against the manure for my boys, YNWA
