Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has refuted diving accusations which continue to be levelled in his direction. The Uruguay international has earned an unwelcome reputation for going down too easily and admits the label makes him angry. He said: "I insist I don't dive in the penalty area. This is my career and the bad reputation created around me is unjust. "If you analyse the statistics I am one of the forwards who receives the most fouls and free-kicks. There always seems to be controversy surrounding me but I accept the referee's decisions - they are only human. "I accept the criticism against me but many people attack me without reason. That doesn't please me but I try to do my best day by day." Suarez has also spoken of his desire to bring success back to Anfield and claims to have no problem with shouldering the weight of striking responsibility under Brendan Rodgers. He added: "Many times I play alone in attack but that's not a pressure to me. My mission is to play and to score goals for Liverpool. "Liverpool are one of the top clubs in England and we are obliged to fight for all the titles, including the Premier League . "This has become complicated because of results so far so we need to give our maximum in every match. "Rodgers is a new coach and is normal that things will get better match to match. I'm confident it will work. "My dream for this season is to make the top four. Our squad should be fighting against the biggest rivals in this division."
