Manchester United vs. Liverpool: Luis Suarez Warned He Is on His Final Chance
One of Liverpool’s favourite sons, Robbie Fowler, has told Luis Suarez not to mess up again as the Uruguayan prepares to make his comeback on Wednesday.
Suarez is expected to make his long-awaited Liverpool return when the Reds visit Manchester United in the League Cup, having finally completed a 10-game suspension for biting.
According to BBC Sport's Alistair McGowan, Fowler says the South American is out of lives at Anfield and that this is Suarez’s last chance:
Without a doubt. He has let a lot of people down, including himself. The club have stood by him, so have the Liverpool supporters, and you can see why because he is a phenomenal player and you want phenomenal players in your side.
Suarez has brought shame to Liverpool both on and off the field, having previously been found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra, before entering into a summer-long flirtation with Arsenal and Real Madrid.
The striker was extremely vocal in his attempts to leave Anfield. He even questioned the integrity of manager Brendan Rodgers, claiming the club betrayed him by not allowing him to leave when they failed to book Champions League football.
However, Fowler says it is Suarez who owes Liverpool, after several instances in which the club has tarnished its own reputation in order to stand by the player.
I know in the summer it looked like he was leaving and quite rightly Liverpool expected a bit of loyalty back off him and thankfully he is still a Liverpool player.
I don't think he'll get many more chances but I don't think he will be doing anything remotely as silly as he has.
The one thing Suarez will not be asked to lose from his makeup is the ability to annoy defenders.
Since joining Liverpool the striker has scored 51 goals in 96 appearances and is arguably the most dangerous dribbler in the Premier League.
In total, he attempted to beat a man on 291 occasions last season—almost twice the number of any other player according to Opta via the Guardian. Such a style attracts aggressive defending, and Rodgers expects more of the same at Old Trafford.
Dominic King of the Daily Mail provides the quotes:
I don’t think he will be targeted any more than he has been before. Luis is that type of player.
He will always provoke the tackle or the challenge. It is part of the game and whatever part of the field you play you have to put up with that.
I’m sure that when Luis knew he would be available for the fixture, it would have really stoked him up to make sure he was ever more ready. Yes, you could argue that this is a real good game for him to come back in.
Suarez is sure to face antagonism from fans and players alike on Wednesday, but he is yet to be sent off in his Liverpool career so it would be a surprise if the referee is unduly troubled at Old Trafford.
