Rodgers criticizes Suarez over diving scandal

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has criticized Luis Suarez

after the forward said he dived while playing for the team during a

Premier League match in October.

The Uruguayan forward admitted to ”falling” in an attempt to

win a penalty kick during a goalless tie against Stoke, but no spot

kick was awarded by referee Lee Mason.

Rodgers described Suarez’s behavior as ”unacceptable” and said

the club will look to take action.

Rodgers says ”I have spoken to Luis and it will be dealt with

internally.”

The 25-year-old Suarez was also involved in controversy last

week following his hand ball in the build-up to his winning goal

against Mansfield in the third round of the FA Cup.

Suarez has scored a team-leading 19 goals in all competitions

this season.
