Neither seems to accept that the original offence was bang out of order! Patrice Evra was racially abused but they seem to have conveniently forgotten that. Doing the usually ‘political’ dodge of concentrating on an insignificant point. Who cares what he said to Sky? Totally irrelevant but not a surprise. Strikes us ‘in house’ they all still hold the same views as before. We are not convinced by these weasel words.
“I have spoken with the manager since the game at Old Trafford and I realise I got things wrong.
“I’ve not only let him down, but also the Club and what it stands for and I’m sorry. I made a mistake and I regret what happened.
“I should have shaken Patrice Evra’s hand before the game and I want to apologise for my actions. (what about what you said to him to kick this whole thing off??? ff)
“I would like to put this whole issue behind me and concentrate on playing football.”
“Ian Ayre has made the Club’s position absolutely clear and it is right that Luis Suarez has now apologised for what happened at Old Trafford,” said Dalglish. (what about before that? ff)
“To be honest, I was shocked to hear that the player had not shaken hands having been told earlier in the week that he would do. (yeah, course he didn’t watch what was going on. ff)
“But as Ian said earlier, all of us have a responsibility to represent this Club in a fit and proper manner and that applies equally to me as Liverpool manager.
“When I went on TV after yesterday’s game I hadn’t seen what had happened, (he expects us to believe this tosh? ff) but I did not conduct myself in a way befitting of a Liverpool manager during that interview and I’d like to apologise for that.” (who cares if you ‘apologise’ to Sky – grow up. ff)
