FC Liverpool and Luis Suarez Eight-Match Ban Update

Liverpool top tier officials reportedly plan to request talks with their Manchester United counterparts in an attempt to subdue tensions before the two clubs meet at Old Trafford on 11 February.

Despite Dalglish’s firm support of Luis Suarez, Liverpool has decided to accept the eight-match ban handed to striker Suarez for reportedly racially abusing Patrice Evra.

Liverpool FC travel to Anfield on Saturday, and the Scotsman wants his players to pull up after their recent 3-0 defeat to Manchester City.

Liverpool boss, Kenny Dalglish wants The Reds to bounce back from recent losses to Oldham Athletic in FA Cup and Man City in Premiership.

The Reds will be playing without star player, Luis Suarez.

The Anfield side face Roberto Mancini’s men again in the League Cup semi-final next week.

“To get back on the pitch after the week we’ve had on and off it is the best thing we can do,” commented Dalglish.

“The FA Cup has been undermined in many ways and in many quarters, for varying reasons but we certainly won’t ever undermine it.

“It’s a competition that’s there to be won so we’ll go into the Oldham game with the same attitude and desire as we went into the Carling Cup.”

“We’ve always said how strong the squad is and maybe it’s an opportunity for us to give the people in that squad the gratitude they deserve by giving them an opportunity to start the game,” he added.

“But that’s not to say we’re undermining or being disrespectful in any way. We’ll treat Oldham with complete respect.

“League positions don’t matter in cup competitions or in any game. On any one day, any team can beat anyone else.

“If you’re not prepared for it mentally and physically, you’re going to make it much more difficult for yourself.”
