'Reds moving on after Suarez departure'
23 July 2014, 10:10
Liverpool - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says the team is moving on after Luis Suarez was sent to Barcelona for a $130 million transfer fee.
Rodgers said Tuesday "Liverpool is bigger than any one player."
Suarez scored 82 goals in 133 Liverpool appearances, but his three years in England were overshadowed by bans for racial abuse and biting.
The Uruguay international was suspended for four months by Fifa for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup. Suarez cannot join his new team in Spain until after the suspension is over.
Rodgers spoke at baseball's Fenway Park before the Reds practiced for Wednesday night's friendly against AS Roma.
Liverpool is owned by Boston Red Sox owner John Henry, and Roma is owned by the NBA's Boston Celtics minority owner Jim Pallotta.
