Liverpool star Luis Suarez has revealed that he is “upset” after becoming the subject of a Football Association investigation following accusations that he racially abused Manchester United defender Patrice Evra during Saturday’s Premier League fixture.
The Uruguayan striker wrote on Twitter: “I can only say that I have always respected and respect everybody.
“We are all the same. I go to the field with the maximum illusion of a little child who enjoys what he does, not to create conflicts.”
It has now been confirmed that the Football Association will now investigate Evra’s claims as they released a statement on Sunday, as the United defender alleges that the incident took place during the 1-1 draw at Anfield.
A Liverpool spokesman earlier told the Press Association that Suarez “categorically denied” the allegation.
An FA statement read: “Referee Andre Marriner was made aware of an allegation at the end of the fixture and has reported this to the FA.
“The FA will now begin making enquiries into the matter.”
Evra was quoted as telling French TV station Canal Plus: “There are cameras, you can see him [Suarez] say a certain word to me at least 10 times.”
