Luis Suarez Official Defence To FIFA – Must Read

10 years ago

A translation of Luis Suarez’ official statement of defence to FIFA is now circulating and makes great reading.

When Uruguay play Columbia later tonight, Luis Suarez will be contemplating just why his brilliant defence didn’t go down so well with the FIFA decision makers.

After reading the following I’m sure you will agree that he has been hard done by…

“At that moment of impact, it forced me to bend my knees and lost balance, ending up falling on the opponent (Chiellini).

“I slammed my face against the player leaving a small bruise and sharp pain in my teeth – therefore the referee stopped the game.

This is what happened and in no case what has been described as a bite, or attempting to bite, happened.”

While most of the World has a chuckle, Uruguay/Liverpool apologists will be now putting out Luis’ version as fact.

Also interested to read that one UK punter had landed a massive bet after bookies gave him 175/1 odds on the Liverpool striker biting another player at this World Cup.
