Luis Suarez Speaks On Biting Giorgio Chiellini

Uruguay’s striker, Luis Suarez has finally spoken on his alleged biting of Giorgio Chiellini in the match between Italy and Uruguay at the ongoing 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The Liverpool striker was caught on camera biting the Italy defender during the match the South Americans won 1-0 courtesy of a solitary goal scored by Diego Godin.

While commenting on the incident in an interview conducted by local reporters after his country’s win which took them through to the knockout rounds, Suares played down the latest incident as ‘just something that happens on the pitch’.

The player who plays in the English Premier League, and who has twice been banned for biting an opponent, said: “These situations arise on the pitch, I’ve collided with his shoulder. It drove me a little crazy too, but these things happen on the pitch. There’s no need to make a story out of it.”

Football governing body, FIFA has confirmed disciplinary proceedings have been opened against the Uruguayan forward, who could be banned for up to two year over the incident.

Meanwhile, many football fans and pundits are united in their view Suarez should receive a lengthy ban for yet another apparent biting offence.

Former England defender Danny Mills has gone a step further – insisting the Uruguayan should be ‘thrown in jail and locked up forever’.
