NGog agent - My player is not a cheat

Liverpool striker David N'Gog's agent claims his under-fire client is not a cheat following the storm which has erupted since Monday's 2-2 draw with Birmingham City.

N'Gog has been widely criticised after appearing to win a cheap penalty against the Blues which Steven Gerrard converted to earn the struggling Reds a point.

Birmingham midfielder Lee Carsley accused the French youngster of cheating, but agent Bruno Satin has leapt to the defence of his client.

"He wouldn't try and con the ref," he told The Sun.

"He's a lad with very good education, correct and polite. He doesn't look for these things. He's never had a problem of this type before in his career.

"Maybe he fell down because he was worried about being injured? At times players make very hard challenges in England. They allow a lot of things to defenders in the Premier League. At times it's really on the limit.

"Sometimes there are challenges that can assassinate you. A defender could get five matches for throwing his shirt and the player who broke the leg of Eduardo only had a three-game suspension.

"Did the defender put the safety of the player in danger? You have to look at things in a more reasonable proportion."
