Arsenal defender Koscielny calls Liverpool's Suarez a cheat

Laurent Koscielny has described Luis Suarez as a “cheat” and claimed that for that reason, the Liverpool striker is his least favourite opponent, according to the Daily Telegraph. The Arsenal defender was speaking with the French media.

Koscielny relayed a tale from the recent encounter between Liverpool and Arsenal, when he and Suarez were jostling for position and the Uruguayan took a tumble, calling in English for a penalty. No spot kick was given and Arsenal went on to win the match 2-0 thanks to goals from Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla. Koscielny entered the match as a late substitute.

Suarez, Koscielny added, has a tendency to pull his marker’s shirt and slyly hit his opponent with what the centre-back claims are “small blows”, with Koscielny admitting a desire to retaliate but avoiding doing so for fear of being sent off.

The Liverpool striker has been at the centre of a number of controversial incidents this season, raising the ire of Stoke City manager Tony Pulis as well as seeming to be stamped on by Stoke defender Robert Huth. A FIFA vice-president has also criticised Suarez recently, while Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and teammates Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson have defended the forward.
