Liverpool owners feel they must part ways with Suarez

Liverpool feel the only way to emerge from the controversy at Manchester United is to sell Luis Suarez. The Mirror says Liverpool will not publicly outline any plan to move on Suarez in summer, because that would undermine their negotiating position.

Yet he can hardly be allowed to stay after being accused of lying by his club and betraying Kenny Dalglish so badly when he sat in the manager's office last Wednesday and insisted he would shake hands.

Dalglish is known for his loyalty, but now he feels Suarez has undermined the traditions of the club he loves, there will be no forgiveness.

Although he would not say it himself, Dalglish's feelings were revealed by his close friend Alan Hansen, who insisted Suarez had "let Kenny down" despite receiving "unequivocal support".

Liverpool's condemnation yesterday was a clear indication their owners can no longer accept the damaging effect the affair has had on the club's reputation.

There is a feeling within the hierarchy the only way to draw a line under the row is to allow Suarez to leave in summer and rebuild relations with both the FA and Manchester United.
