Suarez antics 'laughable': Carragher

Former Liverpool stalwart Jamie Carragher has described Luis Suarez's attempts to engineer a move away from the Premier League club as "laughable".

Earlier this week, Suarez accused Liverpool of breaking promises by preventing him from joining another club, but manager Brendan Rodgers has refuted that and forced the Uruguayan to train on his own.

Arsenal have had two bids for Suarez rejected, but Carragher does not think the striker should be thinking about turning his back on Liverpool. “It didn’t surprise me that Brendan Rodgers has made him train on his own,” wrote Carragher in the Daily Mail newspaper.

“I never thought Luis would down tools in the way Fernando Torres did when he wanted to leave Liverpool — his attitude over the final 18 months became progressively worse — but now Suarez has given me reason to think again.

“To see it come to this is very dispiriting. A lot of good people have stood by Luis since he joined the club. “So it is laughable to hear he is unhappy with Liverpool for not letting him join Arsenal.”
