Poyet advises England to ‘kick’ Suarez

Gus Poyet has told England that the only way to stop Luis Suarez at the World Cup will be to kick the Uruguay forward, ESPN has reported.

England and Uruguay meet in the second round of Group D games with Suarez battling to be fit for the tournament after undergoing knee surgery. Poyet has said that while the likes of Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard might be reluctant to go in too hard on his club colleague, he’s going to have to.


“You need to forget he's your team-mate and you need to kick him,” the Sunderland manager said. “I don't think Steven Gerrard wants to lose Suarez for next year,” Poyet added. “Imagine if you make a tackle that goes wrong in the last couple of minutes, a proper English tackle, and he nearly broke his ankle. But that is football.


“The attitude of Uruguayans is: 'I'm not going to accept you're better than me, that I lose'. Whatever it is, to stop you, to win the game. Yeah we do that, and we are proud of that.


“Do you want to win the game more than me? You've got no chance - I will do more than you to win. "Are England too nice, do they need to get tougher? Yeah.”


Poyet won 26 international caps for Uruguay, making his debut in 1999 and playing his last game in 2000. He represented French side Grenoble, Argentineans River Plate, Spanish outfit Real Zaragoza and Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in his club career before managing Brighton and Hove Albion and the Black Cats.
