Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has no regrets over the club’s failed attempts to bring Luis Suarez to the Emirates last summer and insists the club will not make another attempt to sign the Uruguayan.
The Gunners made a bid of £40m and one pound for Suarez, hoping to trigger his release-clause, as it was reported he would be allowed to leave for anything over £40m. Suarez will line up against Arsenal on Saturday and he could harm the Gunners’ bid for a first title since 2004.
“You sometimes have regrets when players who played for you score goals or do well somewhere else,but he was never our player, it is a situation that didn’t come off and that is it.
When questioned on whether or not Arsenal would try and bring the Premier League’s top scorer to the Emirates in future, he replied, “At the moment no, no.”
While a win on Merseyside could boost Arsenal’s chances of winning the title, their inability to sign Suarez could come back to bite them should the Uruguayan put them to the sword.
“In the Premiership now, every point is vital. But we enjoy that and we have fought very hard until now to be in that position. So let’s just enjoy it and give it our best,” said Wenger.
