Liverpool legend Barnes says Suarez should be sold

Liverpool legend John Barnes feels Luis Suarez should be sold.

The striker declared last week he wanted to leave Anfield.

Barnes told the Daily Star Sunday: “I would like Luis Suarez to stay but if he is not happy and doesn’t want to then he’s got to go.

“I always tell fans to fall in love with the club not with individual players.

“Players come and go. Fernando Torres decided to move on from Liverpool, Wayne Rooney could leave Manchester United and Robin van Persie left Arsenal last summer.

“Yes, I want Luis Suarez to stay. I think he’s a great ­player. Forget what he does off the field – I’m not judging him by that – but if he wants to go, then he should go and fans should accept that.”
