The most controversial man in football at the moment, Liverpool’s Luis Suarez, has given a spicy interview to Argentinean media. In true Suarez Style, he lambasted the British press (whom he says is controlled by Man United) and of course, the icing on the cake : he admitted to diving for a penalty. Suarez has since been criticized by Brendan Rodgers and may also face a hefty fine from the club for his actions. Oh, mío Dios Luis, puedes callarte?!
“It’s true I fell because we were drawing against Stoke at home and we needed to do something. But afterwards, the coaches of Stoke, Everton, all of them, came forward. I came to realise that the name of Suarez was a (newspaper) seller.” – Suarez
Interestingly, the 25-year-old also claims that foreign players are treated differently to home-grown players in the Premier League. Well, that’s because most of the Spanish/foreign-speaking players hardly make the effort to learn the local language (who bothers with English, really?!) and also tend to hang out within various cliques. So indeed, one should not expect Gareth Barry to invite Kun Aguero over to the pub for a pint after the match anytime soon because it’s too much effort – and Kun already has his ‘Bros’ waiting for a round of golf!
“It’s difficult. It’s what Carlitos (Tevez) said, it’s what Kun (Sergio Aguero) said: foreigners, and especially the South Americans, are treated differently to local players.” – Suarez
“When people come and insult me, saying I’m South American, I don’t start crying. It’s something that stays on the pitch, part of football. My conscience is clear,” he said, before claiming that United control the British press. “The other day, a ball hit my hand without me meaning it to. I kissed my wrist (in celebration) and everyone started rounding on me.” – Suarez
