Suarez ‘will come back to club’

first_img Press Association Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes wantaway striker Luis Suarez will “rejoin the group” and boost the club’s cause in the Barclays Premier League. At a press conference in Dublin, Rodgers said: “Luis is training on his own and he understands totally where we’re coming from. “It’s been a difficult period for him but it’s my job to protect the group. Once he’s back with the spirit he’ll rejoin the group. “We’re quite calm. The club is in control of the situation. We’ve got no inclination to sell and we’ve been strong on that. “Luis has fought for his life for Liverpool. There will come a point where he’ll recognise the club is not going to sell and then he goes on to the pitch and he’ll give 100 per cent. “He’s a world-class striker. I’ve got no question that when he’s back he’ll have a similar impact [to last season].” Rodgers also confirmed the club was working on strengthening the squad further ahead of a season-opener against Stoke on August 17. With Suarez absent from the travelling squad, striker Daniel Sturridge was a notable inclusion having recently returned to full training following an ankle injury. Boston Red Sox and Liverpool owner Henry has stressed that Suarez will have to stay with Liverpool and join their push for a top-four finish next season. The Uruguay international was not named in a 22-man squad to play Celtic in a pre-season friendly in Dublin on Saturday and he is training on his own after Rodgers took exception to his public pleas to leave Anfield in search of Champions League football. On Friday morning Liverpool owner John W Henry insisted the 26-year-old would not be sold and said it would be “ludicrous” to let him join domestic rivals Arsenal, who have had an offer of £40million plus £1 rejected. According to the Liverpool Echo newspaper, he said: “We are not going to sell Luis. “He is one of the best players in the world. I have no reason to believe that he won’t continue to be. “The club is headed in the right direction and this episode is not going to stop us. It is what we are all focused on right now.” Liverpool’s target is the elite level of European football, and captain Steven Gerrard has said recently that Suarez holds the key to how the club will perform in the new campaign. Henry knows the significance of Champions League football which, as well as offering the prospect of challenging for a trophy Liverpool have won five times, also offers huge financial benefits. Henry said: “I think for all of the top clubs it’s extremely important. Especially for Liverpool, since we have not been in Europe and are not in Europe this year – and we haven’t been in the Champions League for a while – obviously to sell Luis to a rival for one of those positions would be ludicrous. “I have told (Arsenal chief executive) Ivan Gazidis that Luis is not for sale. I am unequivocal on that.” last_img read more

GOVERNMENT REJECTED PROPOSALS ON CYBERBULLYING – SINN FÉIN

first_imgThe death last week of a schoolgirl in England, who took her own life after suffering online abuse, is another tragic reminder of the dangers of cyber-bullying and highlights the important role schools have in helping to combat it.This is the view of Sinn Féin education spokesperson, Deputy Jonathan O’Brien, who believes the circumstances that led to the suicide of 14-year-Hannah Smith have many similarities with Erin Gallagher and Ciara Pugsley who died after being targeted by online bullies.Deputy O’Brien said: “The very sad suicide of English teenager, Hannah Smith, has been directly attributed to the abuse she suffered through the posting of anonymous messages via Ask.fm. This latest tragedy has reminded us of the deaths of Donegal school girl Erin Gallagher (13) and Leitrim teen Ciara Pugsley (15) who were targeted in a similar way. Each of these deaths highlight the growing dangers of online bullying and in a survey carried out before Christmas, 17% of teens said they had experienced cyber-bullying.“Despite this, social media sites such as Ask.fm afford its users complete anonymity regardless of what they post through their website. The failure of the Ask.fm administrators to regulate its online content and provide adequate safeguards is very worrying.“Stricter controls are needed in tandem with creating greater awareness amongst young people of the possible consequences if social media is misused to bully their peers.“Recent attempts to raise Irish internet safety with the launch of the Watch Your Space campaign, devoted to providing a portal for young people to show their support for victims of cyberbullying, and the introduction of a new module in schools called Connect with Respect, aimed at helping students understand the impact of cyber-bullying, are steps in the right direction. “More must be done to educate pupils, teachers and parents of the dangers that can arise from this type of behaviour.“In January Sinn Féin introduced a bill that would have updated the existing school bullying guidelines to include cyber-bullying. Regrettably, the government rejected our legislation but this latest suicide to be linked to online bullying has highlighted yet again the dangers of social media websites such Ask.fm.” GOVERNMENT REJECTED PROPOSALS ON CYBERBULLYING – SINN FÉIN was last modified: August 7th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GOVERNMENT REJECTED PROPOSALS ON CYBERBULLYING – SINN FÉINlast_img read more
