Suarez denies Evra racism claim

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has denied claims that he racially abused Patrice Evra during his side’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Saturday, The Guardian reports.

Evra told French television station Canal Plus after the game: “There are cameras, you can see him. He says a certain word to me at least ten times. He knows what he said, the ref knows it, it will come out. I won’t repeat what he said, but it was a racist word.”

In response, a Liverpool spokesman said: “The first we knew about these allegations was 20 minutes after the final whistle when the manager was asked to go into the referee’s office and told about them. The first thing we did, as you would expect, is ask the player and he has categorically denied using any language of that nature.”

The Football Association have announced they will be investigating the incident.
