Home » » FIFA World Cup petition: Ban Luis Suarez
His actions are a total disgrace to football worldwide and deserves to be banned permanently from playing soccer and not just this World Cup. The petition to ban Luis Suarez has been launched. It is clear from the video that has surfaced over the internet that Luis Suarez did bite again, this time Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.
The Uruguay striker appeared in the TV footage and replays to sink his teeth into Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during a winner-take-all Group D match at the World Cup. He left a mark on the defender's shoulder, just as his previous victims. The incident, which wouldn't be the first time Suarez bit another player, occurred in the 80th minute when both players collided in the Italy penalty area.
Chiellini called on FIFA to take action against the Liverpool and Uruguay striker.
"Suarez is a sneak and he gets away with it because FIFA wants their stars to play in the World Cup" Chiellini told Sky Sport Italia, reported ESPN. "I'd love to see if they have the courage to use video evidence against him. The referee saw the bite mark too, but he did nothing about it."
He was suspended 10 games for biting an opponent while playing for Liverpool in April 2013. In 2010, the prodigious goalscorer was banned for seven games for another biting incident while playing for Ajax in the Dutch league.
Given Luis Suarez' bizarre history of biting, he should be banned forever.
