Reds legend John Barnes has told talksport that he feels it’s time for Luis Suarez to leave the club after a week of speculation linking the striker with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid.
The Uruguayan has been quoted as saying he wants to leave the club and country due to his portrayal in the English media and former England man Barnes thinks he should be sold if he is not happy here.
“You can’t keep a player happy. If he doesn’t want to stay his performances will struggle. It won’t be right for Suarez.
“As much as Liverpool want him to stay, if he not happy you’ve got to [let them] go because players will not perform, even subconsciously.
“Liverpool will have a bigger problem if Luis Suarez stays when he doesn’t want to.
“The club shouldn’t force him to stay because you’re not going to get anything out of him.”
