Liverpool forward Luis Suarez admits that he dived during a fixture against Stoke City earlier this season.

Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has admitted that he did dive in a match against Stoke City in an attempt to win a penalty for his side.

The Uruguayan, who was heavily criticised for the incident earlier this season, says that he regrets taking the dive at Anfield.

Suarez told Fox Sports Argentina: "Football is like that. Sometimes you do things on the field that later you think 'why the hell did I do that?'

"I was accused of falling inside the box in a match, and it's true I did it that time because we were drawing against Stoke at home and we needed anything to win it.

"But after that everybody jumped out to talk – the Stoke coach, and the Everton coach... I understood that the name Suarez sells [papers]."

In the interview, Suarez also claimed that Manchester United control the media.
