Champions League Talk:
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has resumed first team training with the Anfield club and has reportedly apologized to his teammates, according to The Guardian newspaper.
Last week Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers had ordered Suarez to train on his own. But after reports this week revealed that Suarez had told his Uruguayan teammates that he planned on staying at Liverpool because of the support of the Liverpool supporters, today’s move is a positive step forward for the controversial footballer who tried to force his way out of the club this summer.
