Liverpool legend Kevin Keegan is a big fan of the Reds' latest No7 Luis Suarez, though saw his diving admission coming.

Keegan wrote in the Daily Mail: "Luis Suarez wears my old No 7 shirt at Liverpool and the fans are desperate to worship the ground he walks on, not falls on.

"He’s a very good player and has been excellent this season but he gets involved in far too many controversial incidents.

"When you are a manager of an English club and your foreign players go home you just wait for something to come out.

"Players relax and think that, as they are in Argentina or Spain or wherever, that their words are not coming back because they weren’t speaking English.

"So Suarez admits he dived against Stoke. I remember the game and I don’t think there was anyone in the world who thought he did anything but dive. But what he does is put the club into a difficult position.

"Brendan Rodgers has no choice but to discipline one of his players and it’s all about Suarez for non-footballing reasons. He needs to sort that side out as he is an exceptional player."
