No lessons learned from Suarez history

  • This is all starting to feel vaguely familiar. If the build-up to Luis Suarez's seemingly inevitable exit from Liverpool mirrored that of his departure from Ajax - the wonderful goal-scoring form, the suggestion that he cannot fulfil his ambitions at his current club, the sudden taste for human flesh - then the act of it may well draw from another chapter in his career.

Liverpool deny the club has been put up for sale by American owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG).

FSG, headed by Liverpool's principal owner John W Henry, are reportedly ready to consider offers for the Premier League club, according to the Sun newspaper.

The group completed its purchase of Liverpool in October 2010, after a turbulent period under previous owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks, and were said to be "unofficially" in the market for £350 million sale.

A club spokesperson denied the reports in a statement released to Press Association Sport: "Fenway Sports Group has made its position clear, Liverpool Football Club is not for sale. There is no truth in this story.

"Like so many rumours in the past about a sale of Liverpool Football Club, there is absolutely no truth in this. We have had no meetings with anyone about a sale, we don't know who the source of the rumour is."
