Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed Luis Suarez is "laden with controversy".

Suarez returns to Old Trafford on Sunday for the first time since he refused to shake Patrice Evra's hand to defuse the row that engulfed Liverpool and Manchester United when the Uruguayan racially abused his opponent at Anfield in October 2011.

Suarez was at the centre of more negative headlines at the weekend when he scored a goal at Mansfield that should clearly have been ruled out for handball. "I didn't see the Mansfield game, so it's difficult to say if it was deliberate or not," said Ferguson. "But I think the lad is laden with controversy. I don't know if he enjoys it or not."
