Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has accused Liverpool striker Luis Suarez of diving to try and earn a penalty, during his sides 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge yesterday, reports the BBC.
Suarez appeared to be tripped off the ball by Chelsea forward Samuel Eto’o in the final ten minutes of yesterday’s top of the table clash, but referee Howard Webb deemed the challenge to be not worthy of a penalty.
“It is not a tackle. Suarez lost the duel with Azpilicueta, who has the ball and is leaving the box,” said Mourinho.
“Now he is doing an acrobatic swimming pool jump to try to get a penalty.”
He added: “He is so clever because he also knows he is in the area with the Liverpool supporters behind him.
“But [referee Howard] Webb is 10 metres away and I think the only mistake he did was not to give him a yellow card.”
“I am always happy when I see him [Suarez] play because I love his quality, his commitment, his ambition to win. He is absolutely a fantastic player,” continued Mourinho.
“But this country is a special country. I’m not English or British but I feel I have also responsibility in defending some values in this football.
“One of the things that we have good is that we don’t like people with simulations.
“This situation in the box with Azpilicueta and Eto’o, stop with this or give him a yellow card because it is not good for our game.”
