What Luis Suarez said to the referee after being booked for shocking dive vs Las Palmas

Despite Barcelona winning 3-0, Luis Suarez had a very frustrating afternoon against Las Palmas on Sunday.

In-front of an empty Camp Nou, Lionel Messi’s brace and Sergio Busquets’ header saw Barca continue their impressive start to the campaign.

But Suarez hasn’t enjoyed the greatest start to the season.

The striker has scored just two goals in eight appearances in all competitions for the club, missing plenty of opportunities in front of goal.

And that happened once again as the Uruguayan dragged an effort wide when one-on-one in injury-time, causing him to rip his shirt in anger.

But that wasn’t the only notable moment the former Liverpool striker was involved in against Las Palmas.

Also in the second-half, he went through on goal, rounded the goalkeeper before producing a frankly awful dive when he realised he wasn’t going to get the ball.

It resulted in referee Martinez Munuera showing him a yellow card for simulation.

But Suarez wasn’t having any of it and Marca has revealed the conversation he had with the ref after getting booked.

“He pushed me! He pushed me!” Suarez claimed, suggesting that the defender had shoved him before he rounded the ‘keeper.

The ref then replied: “Do not ask me for a penalty.”


But Suarez denied asking for a penalty but also insisted he didn’t dive.

"I asked you for something? What did I ask you?" he said.



Of course, Suarez is no stranger to simulation or feigning injury.

Whilst at Liverpool, he was seen recovering from injury hilariously after seeing his side win back possession just seconds after he was writhing around in agony.

It’s those sort of actions that has painted him as a pantomime villain amongst many football fans despite his incredible goalscoring record.
