Luis Suarez on Biting Incident: I Lost my Balance and Fell
This guy just doesn’t get it, which is why many believed he should’ve received a longer suspension than he got from FIFA.
According to the Daily Mail, before Luis Suarez received his nine-match, four-month suspension, he wrote this letter to the FIFA panel pleading his case.
‘In no way it happened how you have described, as a bite or intent to bite.’
‘After the impact … I lost my balance, making my body unstable and falling on top of my opponent,’ Suarez wrote in his submission to the panel which met on Wednesday, one day after Uruguay beat Italy 1-0 in a decisive group-stage match.
‘At that moment I hit my face against the player leaving a small bruise on my cheek and a strong pain in my teeth,’ Suarez said.
Now take a look at the incident again and make up your mind as to whether you buy his silly argument.
