The Liverpool winger has replied to comments that he dived during his side’s win against Newcastle on the 1st of January.
In an enthralling game, Jurgen Klopp’s side came out the victors at Anfield, beating Newcastle 4-2 to go top of the league.
But Liverpool’s last goal was slightly controversial as Diogo Jota was brought down by Martin Dubravka with the referee pointing to the spot.
Alan Shearer claimed that he dived during an episode of his The Rest is Football podcast.
“Yeah, he f***ing dived. Pretty simple. That is as clear a dive you will ever see.” He said.
Speaking prior to Liverpool’s clash with Bournemouth, the Portuguese forward replied to some of the criticism he has received.
“Listen, of course I saw some comments from ex-players and people who are paid to talk about situations,” he said.
“The only thing I can say is even the keeper said it was a touch and I didn’t feel the conditions to stay up. So that’s it.
“Would I rather put the ball in the net than see Mo [Salah] take a penalty? Yes, of course. That’s what I like to do – to score goals. That’s all I have to say.”
