The Football Association continue to investigate the claim made by Patrice Evra that Luis Suarez made a racist comment towards the Frenchman during Liverpool’s recent match against Manchester United.
Suarez has protested his innocence since the 1-1 draw at Anfield, with the Uruguayan now speaking out about the incident where the Reds striker claims that he simply called Evra a name that is used by his United team-mates.
“The FA will have to clear it up with him, because there is no proof at all that I have said anything racist,” Suarez told Uruguayan newspaper El Pais.
“I didn’t say anything like that to him. There are things that happen in football, all in the moment, that leaves one feeling bad.
“Now we have to wait to see this issue decided and then the Manchester player and I will have to clear things up.
“Depending on who ends up in the wrong, one of us will have to apologise.
“There were two sides of our discussion, one in Spanish and one in English. I didn’t insult him, it was just my way of expressing myself.
“I called him something that his own Manchester United players call him.
“Furthermore, even they were surprised at his reaction on the pitch.”
