LUIS SUAREZ HIT BACK AT CRITICS OVER DIVING


Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has hit back at Tony Pulis in the row over his 'dive' against Stoke, saying he doesn't care what the Potters boss - or anyone else - thinks about his behaviour.

Pulis branded Suarez an 'embarrassment' while a host of other high-profile figures in the game have queued up to hammer the Reds frontman.

The controversial Uruguay striker has attracted huge criticism for going down the penalty area in the stalemate at Anfield last Sunday.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has leapt to his defence, however, insisting his man had been unfairly 'vilified' for his theatrics.

Suarez, preparing for his country's World Cup qualifying double-header against Argentina and Bolivia, claims he is unaffected by the growing row and is focused purely on helping Liverpool improve on a poor start to the new campaign.

Among the high-profile figures taking issue with Suarez's behaviour this week has been FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce, who labelled diving a 'cancer' within football and called for guilty players to be banned retrospectively.

Boyce, who is Great Britain’s representative on the FIFA board, said: ‘I have seen several incidents recently and I watched the latest Suarez incident two or three times. To me it is nothing less than a form of cheating.
