Paul Scharner hits out at Liverpool forward

West Bromwich player Paul Scharner has blasted Luis Suarez following Liverpool’s 2-0 victory against the Baggies on Saturday.

Liverpool were handed a penalty following Jerome Thomas’ foul on Suarez inside the penalty box in the eighth minute, of which Charlie Adam stepped up to take full of advantage of and put Liverpool in front.

Following this, Scharner has accused the Uruguayan international of diving, and boss Roy Hodgson questioned referee Lee Mason’s decision after the match, in the latest scandal to involve Suarez.
Kop boss Kenny Dalglish defended his player, who has been accused of going to ground easily on several occasions so far this season.

And now midfielder Scharner is the most recent player to make an accusation of Suarez and claims he was left unhappy with the decision to award a penalty, which was originally pointed out by his assistant.

Asked for his verdict on Suarez’s performance, Scharner said: “It was a nice dive for the penalty and that got Liverpool well started for the game.
“It put us under pressure and we weren’t good enough to respond.

“He (Suarez) is very good at winning penalties. He’s one of the best on the planet, in fact. I had a good view of it.” Scharner added.
“If that’s a penalty, then you will find 1,500 penalties are given in every match.

“I know it was the assistant who flagged for it and maybe he had a better view than the referee. But there was a general feeling amongst all the players that it was a soft penalty.”

Adam is now an online veteran of publishing and has experience across all the leagues. A Liverpool fan since he was a child, Adam brings you all the latest gossip from Anfield, good or bad!
