Uruguayan and Liverpool superstar, Luis Suarez has recently hit out at FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce saying that he was trying to get ‘publicity’ with is comments about diving.
Jim Boyce felt that the acts Suarez performed against Stoke were acts of cheating and that diving is ‘like a cancer’ in modern football. In response to this Suarez couldn’t understand why he was talking about him and that he needed to get his own publicity out there and that is why he was talking about the Liverpool number 7.
Suarez isn’t affected by the comments as he has dealt with worse before in the English game. Suarez stated that football is what he is paid to do and that is what he will be doing in the best way he can.
The comments that Boyce made prompted the Uruguayan FA to write to FIFA to defend their player and that they felt Boyce should be referred to the ethics committee for the comments he made on their player.
It appears that Suarez will continue to play the same way he has done since he came to England last January. He isn’t going to be too bothered by any criticisms as he has heard it all before and it never affected him. Suarez knows he has a big role to play at Liverpool now that he is the only recognised striker in the squad. If he stays fit and scores goals week in week out he can help Liverpool go up the table.
As far as Suarez is concerned it is a case of 'talk to the hand because the face ain't listening!'
