Black Luis Suarez’s career suicide: Liverpool star did racially abuse Man United’s Patrice Evra

by | 20th, December 2011

LIVERPOOL striker Luis Suarez did racially abuse Manchester United’s Patrice Evra. The Uruguayan has been handed an eight match ban. The FA’s Independent Regulatory Commission have buried Suarez, who says he is innocent. He says the word “negro” is nuanced. It is merely observational.

That commission is made up of:

PAUL GOULDING QC (chairman): Lawyer and wualified FA coach.
BRIAN JONES: Chairman of Sheffield and Hallamshire FA.
DENIS SMITH: Ex-Stoke defender who has managed York, Sunderland and Oxford United.

The, alleged, key quotes  from Liverpool’s 1-1 with Manchester Untied are:

Evra : “Don’t touch me, you South American”

Suarez : “Porque, negro?”

Evra is booked. He shouts at the referee Marriner: “You’re only booking me because I’m black”

Suarez : “I called him something his team-mates call him and even they were surprised by his reaction”

Andre Marriner may care to contact his own lawyers. If Evra said that, it is despicable.  But it is the racism that end careers, not the perception of it. Is guilty then Suarez has committed career suicide.
