MUTV pundits slammed after suggesting Man Utd sign Luis Suarez

Date published: Tuesday 6th August 2019 5:01

Former Manchester United players have got into hot water with the club’s fans for suggesting the club sign former Liverpool star Luis Suarez.

The remarkable suggestion aired as part of Paddy Crerard’s show on the official Manchester United television channel on Monday evening.

The club have been linked with a number of forward options, including Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic as they look to offload Romelu Lukaku.

Suarez’ four-year spell at Liverpool was not without controversy. Alongside a pair of notable biting incidents, the Uruguayan striker was found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra in a match between the old rivals back in 2011.

David May, one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s treble winners, and host Crerard both suggested that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should consider signing the striker this summer, failing to mention the incident with Evra and shrugging off his past with Liverpool.

The clip has subsequently gone viral on social media and drawn an irate reaction from Manchester United supporters.

Suarez, 32, still has another two years to run on his current deal with the La Liga giants. He’s been at the club since 2014 and scored 177 goals in 247 appearances for them.

He memorably scored 31 league goals for Liverpool in the 2013-14 campaign, in which they narrowly missed out on the Premier League title to Manchester City.
