Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has claimed that his ‘conscience is clear’, while talking about the racism incident that took place last season. Suarez was found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.
Suarez faced an eight-match suspension after he called Evra a ‘negro’.
However, Suarez claimed that he was only punished because of United’s on the media, otherwise he was not guilty.
“Everybody has a different way of dealing with it,” he told ESPN. “My conscience is clear after talking it all through. Manchester United hold a lot of sway over the press here and they’re always going to use it in their favour.”
Suarez, instead, blamed Evra for the incident, and claimed that the French defender insulted him about his nationality.
“Leaving aside that I had an argument with a person, he thought he could speak Spanish but he doesn’t,” Suarez added. “And when someone comes up to you and calls you names about being South American, you aren’t just going to burst out weeping, are you? It’s part of football.”
