Not so long ago Liverpool striker Luis Suarez said, “I realise and I prefer to continue and not be the same as before,” following his return from a 10 match ban he received, as he said he was now a changed man.
We all had thought that Suarez has changed and credit to him, in the games he has played for Liverpool after his ban he has been very well behaved but last night against Argentina, the striker was up to his old tricks of diving, or simulation as they like to call it.
“I realise and I prefer to continue and not be the same as before.” Well Luis, what you did against Argentina was “the same as before”.
Suarez went down too easily to win a penalty for Uruguay in their World Cup qualifier against Argentina. Suarez picked himself up and slotted home the resulting penalty in a match that Uruguay ended up winning 3-2 but they still need to face Jordan in a playoff to qualify for Brazil 2014.
What are your thoughts on this latest Suarez incident? It is a part of his game that he really needs to cut out. Too many players are going down easily and stricter punishments should be handed to them. I know it is Suarez and thus everyone will be making a fuss about this ‘dive’ today just because it is him. That is the price he pays I guess for always being in the spotlight.
