Former Liverpool striker Roger Hunt, a member of England’s team that won the World Cup in 1966 and a footballer who won two top-flight titles with the Reds, has come out and said that someone at Anfield needs to tell Luis Suarez to stop taking theatrical dives.
“I think he’s got the reputation now and sometimes it probably is a penalty, but with his reputation the referees won’t give him one,” said Hunt. “Someone must tell him to stop it, just play football. He doesn’t have to do all that.”
