Johnson reignites Suarez row

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has accused Manchester United defender Patrice Evra of manufacturing the handshake incident with Luis Suarez at Old Trafford which further inflamed the race row between the two players.

Suarez was given an eight-match ban by the Football Association for racially abusing Evra during an earlier match and the row was reignited when Suarez refused to shake Evra's hand when the sides met again at Old Trafford. Suarez and the club have since apologised for his actions at Old Trafford.

But Johnson believes Evra "stayed up all night" coming up with a plan to make sure Suarez did not greet his opponent in the expected manner by holding his hand by his side. Johnson said: "Evra was clever at Old Trafford."
