Liverpool’s boss reckons his star striker is worth closer to the £100m Gareth Bale will command…
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hinted that star striker Luis Suarez is worth close to the £100m Gareth Bale will cost Real Madrid, reports BBC Sport.
Speaking after his side’s 2-0 win over Olympiakos in Steven Gerrard’s testimonial at Anfield, the Northern Irishman was again adamant that the Uruguayan would not be leaving Mersyeyside. He then claimed that if the club were to accept a transfer fee, it would have to be close to whatever Real Madrid are prepared to pay Tottenham for Gareth Bale.
“It is very, very simple: he is a top player and we don’t want to sell him,” said Rodgers.
“Of course, throughout the world every player will have a value, but you only have to look at the market and £40m and £1… Gareth Bale they are talking about nine figures.
“Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez were arguably the two best players in the Premier League and you can’t say Gareth Bale is valued at more than 100% more than Luis Suarez.
“We are very strong in the belief in what we are doing and there will be no-one moving out of here.”
