Luis Suarez Bite

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has once again hit the headlines for the wrong reasons.

Just when you thought that Luis Suarez has reformed himself, he is back to his biting best.

This time Italy international Giorgio Chiellini was his target during the Azzurri’s final Group D game against Uruguay at the Arena das Dunas in Natal.

It was the 79th minute and the match was goalless when Suarez, for a reason known only to him, decided to move his head into the back of Chiellini.

The Juventus centre-back fell to the ground and then rushed towards the referee asking him to send Suarez off.

Interestingly, the 29-year-old defender was pointing to his shoulder and claiming that he had been bitten by Suarez. One of the Uruguayan players, Gaston Ramirez, was trying to stop him, and in the end the Liverpool striker went unpunished.

The referee had failed to notice Suarez’s actions and the former Ajax star carried on for the rest of match, which Uruguay won 1-0 to progress to the round of 16 at the expense of Italy, who were reduced to 10 men just before the hour mark.

FIFA is likely to review the incident and Suarez could be punished for his action. But is it going to stop the 27-year-old from doing something similar in the future?

Probably not. After all, this is the third time that Suarez has bit someone on the pitch, as Ajax and Liverpool fans will know very well.
