Liverpool's Luis Suarez and apologies

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers wants an apology from want-away striker Luis Suarez before he plays for the club again.

Suarez’s career, of course, has been full of controversy - everything from celebrating wildly after Ghana missed a penalty against Uruguay when he denied a certain goal, to being banned after he was accused of making racial comments to Manchester United's Patrice Evra.

Suarez put out an apology after the Evra incident, saying he was sorry for any offence caused over the use of his language. After Liverpool’s first meeting with Manchester United after Suarez served his ban, however, Liverpool forced him to apologise again for not shaking Evra’s hand - when he apparently told the club he would do so.

Suarez's biting of Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic also drew an apology - for ‘inexcusable actions’, although, again, many feel that the Liverpool striker was forced to apologize by the club.

The boot is on the other foot now, however, as Suarez's beef is with Liverpool itself, and the jury is out on whether he will make his peace with the club.

The smart money, however, says that Suarez will eventually toe the Liverpool line, as he will want first team football in what is a World Cup season. But smart and Luis Suarez don't often go together, so don't be surprised if there's a continuing impasse.
