Luis Suarez created a major controversy for one of the worlds most famous and storied football clubs as the Liverpool player was found guilty of racial abuse directed towards rival club Manchester United’s captain Patrice Evra.
The Uruguayan forward was handed an eight match suspension from the English Football Association as a result of his actions and received the full support of his club and manager Kenny Dalglish throughout the entire ordeal.
Having served his ban in accordance to the FA Suarez made his return in a substitute appearance against Tottenham Hotspur in a 0-0 draw the weekend prior to facing Manchester United on their home ground of Old Trafford.
During the build up there was talk as to whether or not Suarez and Evra would participate in the pre-match handshake and both players were believed to be in agreement with their managers to do so.
However, with Suarez in the starting line-up for the Reds when he came to Evra he refused the handshake and Evra grabbed his arm trying to force the issue.
The rest of the match was overshadowed by the non-handshake plus additional controversy in the lockerroom tunnel and with Evra’s taunting post match after United won 2-1 with Suarez claiming the only Liverpool goal.
As a result of the continued controversy that should have been put to bed numerous media outlets have hit out at Liverpool as a club as well as individually at the owners, Dalglish and Suarez himself.
All of that has led to the possibility that Liverpool and Luis Suarez may be forced into a transfer that neither want to make but may have to do in order to save face from the global media.
Upstrat French side Paris Saint-Germain and new manager Carlo Ancelotti could be the club and leader to offer the young attacker an exit strategy according to the Telegraph.
Ancelotti was the mastermind of the major Fernando Torres purchase for Chelsea from Liverpool last January before he was sacked as Blues manager and could rekindle his working transfer relationship with Damien Camolli, Liverpool’s main man on transfers and player acquisition.
Italian Serie A side Palermo also could make a surprise move for the player as the clubs president Maurizio Zamparini made the following comments about the fantastic young striker to the Daily Mail:
“I would sign him tomorrow morning – he’s a fantastic striker. I would certainly try to educate him, but I don’t think behaved like this because he is racist.”
Zamparini has a history of signing great Uruguayan strikers having masterminded the moves of now Napoli star Edinson Cavani and current Palermo for Abel Hernandez to the club.
