Suarez Still An Issue For Reds
Departing: Suarez Bids A Fond Farewell To Anfield
Former Liverpool favourite Luis Suarez landed himself in a bit of hot water last season, for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic. Although the Uruguayan apologised, and manager Brendan Rodgers said the club would stick by the 26 year old Striker, so long as he cleaned up his act, it seems that he is still something of a loose cannon; and that cannon has just misfired.

While the matter is investigated, the club have been banned from any transfer activity, and temporarily suspended from playing league football.
