Gerrard calls for fair treatment for Liverpool teammate Suarez

Steven Gerrard believes referees are victimising Luis Suarez after the Uruguayan was denied a penalty during Liverpool’s defeat to Manchester United on Sunday, the Daily Mirror has reported.



Gerrard added that the officials are, in his opinion, pre-judging a decision involving Suarez because of his reputation for going to ground easily. The Liverpool captain went on to say that the penalty United were awarded, when Antonio Valencia went to ground under pressure from Glen Johnson, would not have been given if it was Suarez who was brought down.


Robin van Persie converted the spot kick to give United the lead at Anfield, with the visitors holding on for the win to deny Brendan Rodgers his first victory at home as Liverpool manager. Gerrard had earlier put Liverpool in front despite the home side being down to 10 men following the first-half dismissal of Jonjo Shelvey, but Rafael equalised soon after.


Gerrard said: “I think even when Luis gets blatant penalties now, he's never going to get them. It's down to referees to not judge him. They have got to make their decisions based on what they see.


I almost guarantee that if you flipped the situation, if Luis was in the position of Valencia, he wouldn't get a penalty. We all know that. Reputations go in front of people at times and because Valencia is not someone who is known as a diver, he gets the decision.
