Singapore: Liverpool great Robbie Fowler on Monday defended Luis Suarez from accusations that the Reds forward was a diver, saying it was hard to tell most of the time whether a player's fall was faked or not.
Fowler, speaking in Singapore after a weekend Masters tournament featuring past Premier League greats, agreed in a chat with journalists that Suarez has been receiving a lot of flak recently for his dramatic falls.
"It certainly looks that way, doesn't it? In the game... It's not nice when players dive," said Fowler, who famously refused to be awarded a penalty by the referee in a crunch match against Arsenal in 1996, although he was overruled.
