Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has labelled Liverpool striker Luis Suarez a cheat and admitted he wanted to give him a kick in the game last season.

The Uruguayan has come under fire in recent weeks over going to ground too easily.

“Who is the forward I hate to face? Suarez,” Koscielny told L’Equipe. “Last season I didn’t feel too well.

“It was a match at 12.30 and I don’t like that schedule.

“He is tiresome to defend against. He cheats. He pulls your shirt, giving small blows. You always want to give him a kick but you have to be careful not to be red carded.

“For example on September 2 against Liverpool, it was the case with Luis Suarez.

“He is a player who likes to dive as soon as there is contact. During a challenge we jostled a bit each other and he fell.

“He started to talk to me in English, to say it was a penalty.”
