It may be a Sunday newspaper story but when I picked up today’s Daily Star and turned to the back page and saw the headline “£30m Suar Race” then read the story about how Suarez is a wanted many by the top clubs in Europe.

The article is taking on the angle that Saurez may be ready to leave Liverpool after the racism saga with Patrice Evra which has seen him getting an 8 match ban. When Suarez returns from his ban, he is going to be a target of many opposition fans and as his mother also fears he could become targeted by black players. Thus Suarez may decide to leave the English came and continue his playing career elsewhere.

If this were to happen, it would be a huge blow for Liverpool as he has arguably become our best player. But then again, £30million only for Suarez? Surely he is much more than that!

Suarez’s career has been blighted by many controversies and this latest racism one is probably the worst. The Uruguay striker was banned in Holland for biting an opposition player and then he was Africa’s worst enemy during the 2010 World Cup when he deliberately handled the ball to knock Ghana out of the tournament. Can the striker take on more controversy after this?

I certainly hope he can. There would be nothing better than seeing Suarez bounce back from all this drama and continue helping Liverpool to success.
