Will it be three times unlucky for Suarez?

The Liverpool and Uruguay striker was banned for three matches for biting an opponent when he played for Ajax. Three years later, he was banned for 10 matches by the FA for biting the Chelsea player, Branislav Ivanovic.

It certainly looks as though he was determined to take a chunk out of Giorgio Chiellini’s shoulder in the World Cup match last night. The red teeth marks are clear to see in the photographs.

Suárez says of the 'bite' claims: "These situations happen on the field. I had contact with his shoulder, nothing more, things like that happen all the time." In reply Chiellini says, “Suárez is a sneak and he gets away with it because Fifa want their stars to play in the World Cup.” The Uruguay captain claims that the marks were from an earlier injury and that the British press are fuelling the fire against their striker.

I have no idea because, as I have said before, Canal + are not showing the World Cup matches. Given his history though and the evidence, it does seem possible that Suarez is guilty and should be punished accordingly.

Perhaps Liverpool and Uruguay should consider putting a muzzle on him like you do with dangerous dogs to prevent any further incidents!
