Suarez leaves his mark on the game

Liverpool played Chelsea at Anfield yesterday and fans, not for the first time, saw Luis Suarez bite an opponent. Liverpool were chasing an equaliser late in the game when Suarez bit off more than he could chew. The referee, not seeing the incident, didn’t punish the Uruguyan and he went on to score an equaliser well into injury time. 2010, while playing for Ajax, saw another incident when he got the munchies. That turned out to be his last game for the Dutch team; he was handed a seven match ban. That was the occasion of his move to England and he’s been with Liverpool since.


But he’s not a one-trick pony: he racially abused Evra last year. He also obstructed the ball to prevent his Uruguyan side conceding to Ghana in the World Cup quarter final. What’s clear is that he has an attitude problem; what isn’t too clear as yet is how he picks his victims: Otman Bakkal (PSV Eindhoven); Patrice Evra (Manchester Utd.); Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea).


What’s interesting is that he escaped censure and added insult to injury by scoring against the oppositon in each case.
