Rodgers: Suarez will be dealt with internally

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has expressed his disappointment at comments made by top goalscorer Luis Suarez when he admitted to having dived against Stoke earlier in the season.


Rodgers told reporters at his press conference on Thursday afternoon:

“I think it’s wrong. It’s unacceptable. I’ve spoken to Luis and it will be dealt with internally.”

“Diving is not something we advocate. Our ethics are correct.

“He has been totally understanding on where I am coming from as manager of the club. What was said was wrong, he takes that and we move on.”

Suarez had admitted to diving in the home game against Stoke, which Liverpool drew 0-0, in October, telling Fox Sports Argentina:

“Sometimes you do things on the field that later you think ‘why the hell did I do that?’

“I was accused of falling inside the box in a match, and it’s true I did it that time, because we were drawing against Stoke at home and we needed anything to win it.”
