Liverpool and Uruguay’s Luis Suarez punches opponent in the face
TALISMANIC. That’s what we call people who are talented in football, but are thundering dickheads, right? Well, massive talisman Luis Suarez is in trouble again after punching someone in the face during the World Cup qualifier between Uruguay and Chile.
After a small tussle with Gonzalo Jara in the penalty box, Liverpool striker Suarez thought the best thing to do would be to sock the Chilean defender in the mouth and, of course, all the officials missed it.
It is likely that this will be investigated by Fifa who will probably ban the Liverpool player and fine him £6.80.
Uruguay went on to win the game 2-0, but that’s not what people will be talking about. Fact is, Suarez is almost constantly in the middle of some controversy and, while it is nice to have a bit of character in the game, Suarez seems to be wholly unpleasant.
You may recall that the Uruguayan was banned for eight games last season for racially abusing Patrice Evra, and before that, he was sent-off for an outrageous handball on the goal-line against Ghana in the 2010 World Cup.
It is only a matter of time before Suarez does something else, and he’ll probably end up spitting in the face of an opponent or he’ll shove a referee to the ground like Di Canio, becoming something of a folk-hero to people so bored by football’s efficiency that any ol’ violence will do.
Watch Suarez clock a defender in the mouth.
