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.
