Ferguson: Luis Suarez is a disgrace to Liverpool and should never play again
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has come out with an extraordinary broadside against Liverpool’s Luis Suarez after his side’s 2-1 victory over them at Old Trafford in the Premier League.
The United boss stated in his post-match interview that Suarez was “a disgrace to Liverpool” and “should not be allowed to play for Liverpool again” after the game, before which Suarez refused the offer of a handshake from Patrice Evra.
Ferguson stated that he “couldn’t believe” Suarez’s refusal of the handshake and that “it could’ve incited a riot.” Well, perhaps more likely than certain fanzine-sellers.
Ferguson did, however, accept that Evra’s post-match lap of honour was “too far” and that “he shouldn’t have done that”, despite Evra only celebrating in front of his own fans.
Dalglish’s press conference will follow shortly – although this one looks like it’s not going to go away quietly.
