Owen calls on Liverpool to sell Suarez

Former Liverpool star Michael Owen feels his old club should sell Luis Suarez.

Owen moved to Real Madrid from Liverpool for £8million in 2004 following weeks of uncertainty about his future on Merseyside and understands how clubs can feel pressured to sell their prized assets.

When asked if Liverpool should relent and accede to Suarez's wish to leave, Owen told BT Sport: "Unfortunately I do, yes.

"It's another victory for player power but if you've got an unhappy player and you've got a huge asset like he is then you really have no option.

"It's not like back in the day when you can leave them in the reserves on a relatively small wage and make them suffer.

"You've got £40million plus of player, plus his wage every year. You just have to cash in."
