Both Rodgers and former star Aldridge criticise the striker’s actions.
Want-away Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has received some stern words from both manager Brendan Rodgers and club legend John Aldridge over the way the Uruguayan has acted.
Rodgers believes the forward owes the Anfield faithful more respect and loyalty than the 26-year-old is currently showing, as Suarez tries to engineer a move away – with both Arsenal and Real Madrid interested.
“I think the support he’s received from the supporters and the people of the city of Liverpool has been unrivalled,” the 40-year-old was quoted in the Telegraph.
“In the period of time he’s missed a lot of games for various reasons and the people have stood by him like a son and really looked after him.
“So I’m sure that whatever happens in the coming weeks that will be on his mind because it’s certainly something you can never forget.”
The ‘reasons’ that the Northern Irishman is referring to is the two lengthy bans Suarez has been handed by the FA in the past two seasons, firstly an eight-game period on the sidelines for racially abusing Patrice Evra and most recently, 10 matches for biting Branislav Ivanovic – six of which the South American still has to serve.
Aldridge meanwhile used less tact to describe what he thinks of the forward’s behaviour over the past few weeks.
“There’s a massive lack of loyalty there and especially the way Liverpool have stuck by Luis. Not everything’s all about money,” the former Reds great was quoted in the Sun.
“The fans have been loyal, the manager’s been loyal, his comrades have been loyal, and the hierarchy have been loyal to him.
“They’ve done everything in the powers possible to back him up and he’s basically put a custard pie in everyone’s face.”
Although both men phrased it differently the message to Suarez is still clear, the Uruguayan owes Liverpool for sticking by him and currently the attacker is completely disrespecting the club and the supporters.
