Vile Suarez bites again

Liverpool and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has once again disgraced himself by biting an opponent for the third time in his career, tonight chomping the shoulder of Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini.
In the Group D match that would decide whether Italy or Uruguay would join Costa Rica in the second round, it was Suarez who once again stole the limelight with his disgusting actions.
Unlike when he has done it for Ajax and Liverpool previously, tonight he has done it in front of the eyes of the world and on the biggest stage of them all.
The game was locked at 0-0 when he launched an off the ball-the-ball assault on the shoulder of Chiellini, appearing to bite in to the Italian. Video footage and photos afterwards show Suarez taking a chunk out of Chiellini, while marks on the Italians’ shoulder show clear teeth marks.
Immediately after the incident, Suarez knew what he had done. He pathetically went down to the turf, ironically holding his teeth suggesting he had been elbowed. Chiellini instead tried to show the referee the marks on his shoulder, a Uruguay player trying to cover it up at the same time.
Suarez and the Uruguayan camp remain convinced there is a vendetta in the media against the player, and so he only spoke to Uruguayan press after the game, reportedly saying it was a coming together between chest and shoulder.
Chiellini meanwhile said the referee “lacked courage” in not sending Suarez off, and claimed FIFA do not want top players suspended for the rest of the tournament.
After the support his club Liverpool gave him last season, Suarez has let himself and his country down, but also the staff and fans of his club who stood by him last time this happened.
Let’s hope FIFA throw the book at Suarez and give him a lengthy ban.
