Suarez Admits to Diving, Blames British Press for Unfair Treatment

MOST COMMENTED

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has admitted to diving but claims that the British media, which he said is controlled by Manchester United, treats him unfairly.

In an interview with Fox Sports Argentina, Suarez admitted that he “invented” a foul during a game against Stoke City earlier this year. "I don't listen all the nonsense some people say about me,” the Uruguayan said. “I'm accused of cheating here. People say I throw myself all the time inside the box … 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.”

However, he said that the British press treated him unfairly following the handball that led to a goal against Mansfield in the FA Cup. “I touched the ball with my hand accidentally, and I was criticized 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."

He added later: "I have my conscience clean. But as I have said: Manchester United controls the media, they are powerful and the media will always help them."
