Suarez unaffected by storm of criticism

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is paying little attention to the diving storm that currently surrounds him.

Suarez losing his balance...

The Uruguay international incurred the wrath of Tony Pulis on Saturday, with the Stoke City boss accusing Suarez of going to ground too easily inside the penalty area.

FIFA have joined the debate, with vice-president Jim Boyce calling on the Football Association to take action after seeing simulation become "a cancer within the game".

Suarez, though, is currently away on international duty and has shrugged off the storm which continues to rage in England, with his attention locked on upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

"Everyone should focus on their own team," he told Ovacion.

"Those who want to talk can do so, I am not worried about what they say.

"They can keep talking and in the meantime I will keep on playing football and taking care of my team and what I do. Nothing else matters."

Suarez says that as long as he has the full support of Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, then the opinion of rival coaches and players matters little.

He added: "The support of the coach is very important to me and that's what I really care about."

Diving is once again in focus in England, and across Europe. Here is a selection of related stories you might be interested in:
