Jamie Carragher: Reds right to back Suarez

TEAMtalk :    Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes the club are right to stick by Luis Suarez, saying he’d rather be bitten than have his leg broken.

Suarez is set to find out the length of the ban he will receive for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic at the weekend, after he pleaded guilty to a violent conduct charge but denied a claim from the Football Association that a standard three-match suspension is “clearly insufficient”.

Liverpool continue to stand by their man, despite calls from some for them to cut him loose.

And Carragher cited examples – including himself, Graeme Souness, Robbie Fowler and Jan Molby – of players who Liverpool had backed to their benefit following various misdemeanours.
