John Barnes insists that Liverpool will "survive" if Luis Suarez decides to leave the club this summer.

Liverpool legend John Barnes has insisted that the club will "survive" if they lose star striker Luis Suarez this summer.

The Uruguay international, who criticised the British press for the treatment he receives in England, has been open about his desire to play for Real Madrid.

"What I always say, the club is the most important thing," The Express quotes Barnes as saying. "If Luiz Suarez doesn't want to be at Liverpool, Liverpool will still survive.

"They've survived from Ian Rush [leaving], people before and people after. I don't have a problem with Luis Suarez at all, but the club is the most important thing."

Recent reports have claimed that Suarez will need to put in a transfer request if he wants to leave Anfield.
