Liverpool striker Suarez has a history of diving, claims Everton boss Moyes

David Moyes has accused Luis Suarez of diving to get Jack Rodwell sent off in last year’s Merseyside derby, with the Everton manager admitting he fears the Liverpool striker will do so again when the sides meet on Sunday, the Guardian has reported.

Liverpool went on to win that match 2-0 with Suarez scoring the clinching goal, and also winning a penalty shortly before half-time that was saved by Tim Howard, but Moyes believes Suarez is as likely to engage in more controversial antics than dictate the course of the game within the boundaries of acceptability.


Rodwell’s red card was later rescinded but the damage had been done on the field, drawing the ire of Evertonians as well as the manager, who believes theatrical players such as Suarez will harm the game in the longer term. Moyes said: “[I think Suarez] has got history. What it will do is turn the supporters away from football because [players who dive] are very good at it.” The Everton manager added that players who are awarded penalties for little or no contact are “conning their way to results.


Suarez has been at the centre of diving controversies a number of times already this season but was also denied what appeared to be a legitimate penalty against Norwich City at Carrow Road.


The referee for Sunday’s 219th Merseyside derby will be Andre Mariner.
