Suarez makes diving admission

Published 2 Comments

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has admitted deliberately going to ground in a bid to win a penalty against Stoke earlier this season.

However, he insisted the criticism he received for his controversial recent goal against Mansfield was unjust, and also accused the press of using his name to sell newspapers. Not for the first time during his stint in England, Suarez came under fire after going down theatrically in the penalty area during October's goalless Barclays Premier League draw at home to Stoke.

Although no spot-kick was given, Potters boss Tony Pulis called the Uruguay forward "an embarrassment" after the match. Suarez has now admitted "falling" in an attempt to win a penalty, telling Fox Sports Argentina: "Football is like that. Sometimes you do things on the field that later you think 'why the hell did I do that?'"
