Suarez wants friendly outcome
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez admits he still hopes to come to a "friendly" resolution with the club over his transfer saga.
Suarez is looking to secure a move away from Anfield this summer and has called in the help of the Professional Footballers' Association to try and mediate over a reported buy-out clause in his contract.
The Uruguayan has claimed Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has reneged on an agreement last summer which would allow the player to leave for a Champions League club.
The claim from Suarez has infuriated Rodgers and Liverpool with the player now being forced to train alone with Rodgers suggesting the 26-year-old had shown a "total disrespect" to the club with his outburst.
Suarez remains determined to leave Liverpool, but says he is "still defending the Liverpool shirt" until his future is resolved.
"I'm still defending the Liverpool shirt and I will do so until the last minute," Suarez is quoted as saying Marca.
"My aim is to reach an agreement with the club in a friendly manner and I hope the clause we agreed a year ago is fulfilled. Up to now, it hasn't been.
"It's not that I want to or am desperate to leave, but I like things to be clear and a year ago I made my position to the club clear."
