The Uruguay international denies claims attributed to the Frenchman that he had used racist language during their spat in the 1-1 draw between the two sides at Anfield on Saturday

Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has denied that he directed racist language at Patrice Evra during Saturday's clash with Manchester United.

"I'm upset by the accusations of racism," Suarez said on his Facebook page. "I can only say that I have always respected and respect everybody. We are all the same. I go to the field with the maximum illusion of a little child who enjoys what he does, not to create conflicts."

The two players had to be separated by referee Andre Marriner on several occasions during a lengthy spat and Evra alleged after the match that he had been racially abused by the Uruguayan.

An official spokesman for Liverpool had previously stated that the forward "categorically denied" the allegation. The FA is set to investigate the incident.
