February 12th, 2012 by

“I’ve not only let him down, but also the club and what it stands for and I’m sorry. I made a mistake and I regret what happened. I should have shaken Patrice Evra’s hand before the game and I want to apologise for my actions. I would like to put this whole issue behind me and concentrate on playing football.”

Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre also felt the need to release a statement condemning the actions of the Uruguayan and stating that the club had been misled by Suarez who had previously stated he would shake Evra’s hand.
