Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has called on his fellow Premier League managers to stop criticising Luis Suarez, claming every club should control their own players before accusing others of diving.
Rodgers also warned opponents that it is no good trying to wind up Suarez, feeling it only makes the striker stronger.
"I honestly don't think you can wind Luis up, by having a go at him for diving or anything else," continued Rodgers.
"Others have tried to use it as a psychological tool to put him off and affect referees but it makes him stronger.
"Looking at his performance levels, consistency and goals he's scored, they'd be better off saying nothing. He'll always divide opinion. If he's on your team people will love him but if he isn't he'll get a bit of stick, but that's because he's world class.
