As Luis Suarez is forced to walk train alone after demanding a transfer to a Champions League club, manager Brendan Rodgers has made it clear that he will not rejoin the squad until he's ready to apologize. Like that would make things any less awkward after claiming that the club (and Rodgers in particular) broke promises made to him.
From PA Sport:
"Initially there will be a recognition that (there needs to be) an apology to his team-mates and the club," said Rodgers when asked what Suarez needed to do next.
"I have seen him over a period of time I know it is not the Luis Suarez we know and I have to protect the fans and the players because they deserve more than that.
Even if he's not sold, Suarez won't be able to play the first six matches of the season for Liverpool since his ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic is carried over from last season. So he will have some time to come up with an apology that is more acceptable than saying, "I'm sorry you bought a bunch of players who aren't as good as me and, as a result, can't even qualify for the Europa League with someone who scored 30 goals in all competitions last season."
