Liverpool striker Suarez comes clean over diving

Luis Suarez has admitted he made an unfair attempt at winning a penalty against Stoke City, but believes he was unfairly treated by the media following his handball against Mansfield, reports the Daily Mail. He said: 'I don't listen all the nonsense some people say about me. I'm accused of cheating here. People say I throw myself all the time inside the box.

'Let's see: they said that when we played against Stoke, for instance, and in that case they were right. I invented a foul because we were drawing 1-1 against Stoke and I wanted to win.

'Sometimes on the pitch I say to myself, "what have I done?" But the name of Suarez sells papers.

'The other day, for instance, I touched the ball with my hand accidentally, and I was criticised because I kissed my hand.

'The media make up a lot of things about me because they want to sell papers. I say to the media: you should talk more about football, not about other stuff.'

In an interview in Argentina he claims the reason he is targeted is because Manchester United hold sway over English media - and his South American heritage.
