It would be fair to say that Luis Suarez has been at the centre of yet more controversy this week, with countless individuals jumping on his back following an alleged dive in the game against Stoke at the weekend. However, while everyone continues to gossip on his antics, the player claims that he doesn’t care about the situation and says that he is not worried about some of the accusations that are being branded about.
Suarez left Potters boss Tony Pulis fuming in the game on Sunday, after he went down very easily following a challenge from Robert Huth. In fact, the situation was so comical that it could hardly be described as a challenge and this is the reason why so many individuals have leapt to criticise the Uruguayan.
As well as Pulis, a selection of current and past players of the game have hounded on Suarez and called on the FA to impose a ban on the 25-year-old. However, even though he seems to be the number one target of English football at the moment, the player remains defiant and says that all of the criticism doesn’t bother him in the slightest. He said, “Everyone should focus on their own team. Those who want to talk can do so, I am not worried about what they say. Any manager can say what he wants about me but it doesn’t affect me. Let them carry on talking. Meanwhile I will continue to play football and to concern myself with my team and with what I do – and nothing more.”
Following the incident, Brendan Rodgers is probably very happy that the Reds now have a two week break. During that time, Suarez will be representing Uruguay, with the nation set to play two World Cup qualifiers against Argentina and Bolivia.
