Liverpool's sulky Suarez just wants to keep playing

By Alan Green

In contrast to the ‘content’ Owen, Liverpool’s current stand-out striker Luis Suarez does little to disguise his more than occasional unhappiness: like every time, as against Wolves, when Kenny Dalglish decides to substitute the Uruguayan.

Suarez ‘exits’ with a cursory handshake and then mumbles to himself in Spanish while he has to sit in the dug-out. When the final whistle blows, he’s first down the tunnel. But is this a cause for concern? Is it a sign that Suarez values his personal fortune above that of the team? No, I don’t buy that.

What I see is a brilliant forward who gives everything to the cause and wants to play every minute in every game.

His goal on Saturday was outstanding: fantastic control of a long ball upfield by goalkeeper Reina, twisting Berra inside then outside and finally finding the few inches of room that Hennessy left on the near post.

Dalglish may have other considerations. Me? I WOULD play Suarez for every minute!
