Liverpool hero John Barnes says the club will survive the sale of Luis Suarez.

Suarez has declared he wants to leave Anfield this summer.

Speaking at a charity event in Singapore, Barnes said: "I’d love for Suarez to stay, I think he’s a fantastic player, but if he decides he wants to go, then that’s part of football.

"What I always say, the club is the most important thing.

"If Luiz Suarez doesn’t want to be at Liverpool, Liverpool will still survive. They’ve survived from Ian Rush [leaving], people before and people after.

“I don’t have a problem with Luis Suarez at all, but the club is the most important thing.”
