Suarez To Miss Newcastle Match – It Isn’t The First Time He’s Done It

9 years ago

Obviously it was disgusting what Luis Suarez did on Sunday to Chelsea’s Ivanovic but the only surprise surely should be that anybody is…surprised.

Naturally I’m hoping that Suarez is instantly banned and misses our match on Saturday because he is undoubtedly a class player but definitely not a class person.

Biting another player is beyond the comprehension of any decent person and I couldn’t believe the comments of Liverpool fans after the Chelsea match, coming up with the most pathetic excuses to excuse his behaviour. A few of them were saying how Suarez had been pushed and kicked during the game, as though that then justified this animal-like retaliation.

As I say the only surprise is that people are surprised, as well as his repeated cheating on the pitch the player has had numerous problems with his discipline in the past.

At Ajax he had a run-in with a certain teammate, Albert Luque, in the dressing room at half-time, leading to both players being substituted and Suarez suspended by his club.

Then in November 2010, during a match against PSV, Suarez bit opposition player, Otman Bakkal, on the shoulder. This led to revulsion throughout the Netherlands with the Dutch press branding him the ‘Cannibal Of Ajax’.

The striker was banned for seven matches and during this suspension….Liverpool bought him!

After that biting incident against PSV, Suarez made a video for his Facebook page apologising. After this latest incident, Suarez has…apologised;

“I apologise to my manager and everyone at Liverpool for letting them down.”

Liverpool’s manager Brendan Rodgers said, “This is a club with incredible values and ethics.” So what exactly were they doing signing a player who was on a suspension for biting?

While Rodgers obviously wasn’t there when Suarez signed, it is incredible what an easy ride Liverpool got when they signed  a player with his track record and actually on a suspension for biting when they bought him!

The red half of Liverpool get an incredibly easy ride in the press, I bet most football fans weren’t even aware that he was suspended for biting when they bought Suarez.

The striker now needs to get what is coming to him and the first step is not being on the pitch at St.James’ Park.

Surely the FA can’t fail us on this one…
