Growing up in a footballing community, we were always told that no one player is bigger than the team, but one would find that hard to believe in today’s day and age of obnoxious wages and celebrity lifestyles.
One brand that survived the test of time is Liverpool Football Club, with their fans sticking by the club through thick and thin despite the decades that they have now gone without tasting success in the English top flight.
That brand has taken a monstrous beating over the last couple of years ever since the arrival of Uruguayan trouble maker Luis Suarez. Already a controversial player before he put on Liverpool’s famour red jersey, Suarez has now earned notoriety for his behaviour on the pitch – racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra before showing an affinity for cannibalism by attempting to take a bite out of Branislav Ivanovic’s arm.
Now with Real Madrid circling Anfield in the hope of signing the exceptional Liverpool goalscorer, it is time for Liverpool to cut their loses and sell the 26 year old striker before he does any more damage to their hard earned brand, and possibly invest those funds in bringing in 2 maybe even 3 good players.
