Suarez was accused by Stoke boss Tony Pulis earlier this month of going to ground too easily and now Koscielny has joined the list of critics of the striker.
“Who is the forward I hate to face? Suarez,” Koscielny told L’Equipe. “Last season, I didn’t feel too well.
“It was a match at 12.30pm and I don’t like that schedule.
“He is tiresome to defend against. He cheats. He pulls your shirt, giving small blows. You always want to give him a kick but you have to be careful not to be red carded.
“For example on September 2 against Liverpool, it was the case with Luis Suarez.
“He is a player who likes to dive as soon as there is contact. During a challenge, we jostled a bit each other and he fell.
“He started to talk to me in English, to say it was a penalty.”
