Suarez: I'm no diver
Saturday 15 October 2011
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has hit back at his critics by insisting: "I have never been a diver".
While the Uruguay international's performances have impressed since arriving at Anfield from Ajax in January, the striker has also been accused of making too much of challenges. Suarez, however, insists there is nothing sinister about his reaction to tackles.
"I don't trick anybody," the forward told The Sun ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester United. "I have never been a diver - only a forward who receives so many fouls. The Premier League is more exciting than anywhere else I have played and it's always a battle because it is so physical."
