We’ll build around Suarez, say Reds

London – Three subjects have dominated Liverpool’s peculiar season and they emerged again after the 3-0 dismantling of Wigan.

Luis Suarez’s brilliance, the precocity of Raheem Sterling and what happens in January have been recurring themes, so it was appropriate chairman Tom Werner provided some answers after Liverpool’s seventh undefeated Barclays Premier League game.

Without Suarez, whose double took his tally for the campaign to 13, Liverpool’s prospects would be bleak and many will wonder how long he will stay if the club cannot provide him with Champions League football.

Werner, however, made it clear Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool’s owners, have no intention of trading in the crown jewels and they intend to back manager Brendan Rodgers in the new year with the funds to ease the goalscoring burden on the Uruguayan.

“Luis is a beautiful player to watch and, as a Liverpool fan, I hope I’m watching him for many years to come,” said Werner. “Would we consider selling him? Absolutely not.

“Our intention is to strengthen the squad but actions will speak louder than words. Hopefully, the fans will be pleased with what we accomplish.’

Suarez came under attack from Wigan manager Roberto Martinez who accused him of a ‘stamp’ on midfielder David Jones in the 63rd minute.

No action was taken by referee Kevin Friend but under FA regulations, because it occurred during play and was not an off-the-ball incident, it is considered as having been seen and no more action can be taken. – Daily Mail
