Arsenal striker Eduardo has declared himself "not a cheat" after UEFA's diving ban was scrapped yesterday.

Eduardo, who can play against Standard Liege tomorrow, said: "I certainly feel relieved.

"I did not want to say anything until I was proved innocent. I am not a cheat. I don't dive. And I was very upset when people thought I had."

The UEFA backdown will shock Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson and Chelsea skipper John Terry who insisted Eduardo dived to win a penalty in the qualifier.
