Luis Suarez has responded angrily to comments from FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce over his comments about the Liverpool striker.
Northern Irishman Boyce, Britain's representative on FIFA, described Suarez's clear dive against Stoke as "nothing less than cheating" and said simulation was a "cancer" in the game. That prompted the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) to write to FIFA defending their player and demanding Boyce be referred to the governing body's Ethics Committee.
And Suarez, who played for his country in Saturday night's 3-0 World Cup qualifying defeat to Argentina, has now has his say. In an interview on Argentinian radio, quoted in the Sun, the 25-year-old said: "This guy (Boyce), I've no idea who he is. I don't know why he has been talking about me. He certainly can't be well-known and he wants to get publicity."
