Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish
Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has confirmed his belief in Luis Suarez’s innocence by saying that the full facts about his suspension were not brought to the public eye.
Suarez was on the receiving end of an eight-match ban after he was found to have racially abused Manchester United’s Partice Evra during the 1-1 draw in October.
The club has since decided not to appeal the Uruguayan’s sentence in which he sat out Tuesday night’s clash against Manchester City.
A 115-page document was published on New Year’s Eve by the independent commission, voicing its reasons for the verdict.
Dalglish has since argued out that the document does not voice the truth in which he said: “We have made a statement and I think it is there for everyone to read. Luis has made a brilliant statement and we stand by him.
“There are a lot of things we’d like to say and a lot of things we could say but we don’t want to get ourselves into trouble.
“We know what has gone on; we know what is not in the report and that is important for us. But without me getting myself in trouble, that is me finished.
“It is unfortunate that you don’t actually know the whole content of what went on at the hearing. I am not prepared and I cannot say. I cannot go any further.
“I don’t think we are digging a bigger hole – it is unfortunate we cannot be more forthcoming.”
The tactician then went on to state that his player has been an open target and that a certain bias lies against Liverpool.
