As the Chelsea defender ushered the ball out of play, the former Liverpool man pinched his opponent's leg and appeared to kick out in an unsavoury moment.

The German angrily confronted the forward who laughed before pushing him in his chest.

Both players avoided any punishment with match referee Dr. Felix Brych keeping his cards in his pocket during their heated scuffle.

But Suarez's actions didn't go down too well on social media.

One Twitter user wrote: "Suarez is a vile, disgusting human. A grown man pinching another person."

A second tweeted: "Why do commentators glorify what Suarez does. Constantly laughing and lauding him when he holds his face when no contact is made, kick players after the ball, pinching players."

A third added: "Why is Suarez so f**king weird? What's he pinching Rudiger's leg for??"
