A second division match in Argentina has seen a goalkeeper bite an opponent.
Since returning from his 10-match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic, Luis Suarez has been nothing short of outstanding.
Before this afternoon’s match against Fulham, the Uruguayan striker had netted six goals in his last five games for Liverpool. And a brace in the 4-0 victory over Martin Jol’s men only reinforced what has been clear for some time: Suarez is back and he may be better than ever.
But while he was continuing to transform his reputation from troubled frontman to perfect professional, another footballer was having a moment of madness Suarez knows all too well.
Jose Martinez Gullota may not be a name familiar with many English football fans, but the Argentine goalkeeper will soon be known around the world.
Playing for Boca Unidos against Union Santa Fe, the stopper seemingly took offence to a challenge from Union striker Jara, and sunk his teeth into the opposing player’s back.
The game finished 4-4, but it will be remembered for something else entirely.
