Liverpool principal owner John W. Henry has commented on the £75 million departure of Luis Suarez this summer, saying the timing was right to sell the Uruguayan.
“It was time for Luis and time for the club to make a break,” Henry is quoted explaining. “He brought so much to the club but we brought a lot to Luis.”
The 31-goal striker departed for Barcelona a fortnight ago but Henry insists that Liverpool’s attack will still be “explosive”.
“I think you will still see a very explosive Liverpool offense,” he commented.
The French forward’s move form QPR should be completed before The Reds play Olympiakos in Chicago on Sunday – a match that will see the club’s World Cup players, and new signing Markovic, feature for the first time this summer.
