Chew’s sorry now? Luis Suarez opens his mouth again … to apologise

Disgraced Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has publicly apologised for the biting incident which saw him thrown out of the World Cup and barred from all football-related acitivity for four months.

The Liverpool striker also received a ban of nine international matches after he was caught on camera biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini in their Group D game in Natal, which the South Americans won 1-0 – the third time he had been involved in such an incident, having previously been banned when playing for Ajax and Liverpool.

Suarez received a hero’s welcome when he returned home to Uruguay, shortly before his team-mates, who were knocked out of the tournament in the second round by Colombia, and his actions were defended by seemingly the whole country, with Uruguayan president Jose Mujica even going as far as to call Fifa chiefs ‘sons of bitches’ for their ‘fascist solutions’ to the Suarez affair.

But despite having laughably tried to defend his actions by saying he had lost balance and fallen onto the Italian player, the striker seems to have realised the best thing to do is try and defuse the situation, and has now apologised on Twitter.

He spoke of ‘having had several days to regain my calm and reflect on the calm of what happened’.

‘The truth is that my colleague Giorgio Chiellini suffered the physical result of a bite in the collision he suffered with me,’ he continued.

‘For this: I deeply regret what occurred, I apologize to Giorgio Chiellini and the entire football family, I vow to the public that there will never again be another incident like this.’

Liverpool have yet to make any major comment on his future at the club, as their most important player faces another spell on the sidelines for yet another lengthy
disciplinary ban. Barcelona have been heavily tipped to make a move for the 27-year-old, but one unlikely escape route comes from Kosovan club Hajvalia.

With their country not formally recognised by Fifa, they do not believe any Fifa ban would apply to their league so they are willing to take him. The club, who finished sixth in the Kosovan league last season and are owned by a popular folk singer, would pay Suarez £1200 a month, the maximum they can afford.

Liverpool have yet to comment.
