Rodgers slams Suarez over diving

12:34 pm on 18 January 2013

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says his controversial striker Luis Suarez could face punishment from the club after admitting that he dived to try to win a penalty in a Premier League football game with Stoke City.

Rodgers says he thinks diving is wrong and unacceptable, and he's spoken to Suarez, though it will be dealt with internally.

Suarez hit the headlines for a theatrical fall in the Stoke game after he went to ground under a challenge from Marc Wilson in an unsuccessful attempt to win a second-half penalty.
