SO suggestible are the youth to the antics of “role models” that mums across the land are upset that Liverpool’s Luis Suarez didn’t finish his meal. If Suarez was going to engage in cannibalism, as the Daily Mail called it, than the player should recognise his position as a role model and finish his dinner. Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic might not appreciate being devoured on the field of play but, as mother of two young children, John Terry’s wife might be.

Says Ellis:

“Suarez’s actions on the football field have led to my son being bitten. The boys were at the school’s breakfast club and there had been some altercation because someone had stood on someone’s foot. The other boy turned round to my son and said, ‘I’m going to do a Luis Suarez, I’m going to bite you.’ And then he went ahead and bit his upper right arm. He then went around bragging to the other children that he had ‘done a Suarez’.”

Ryan, of Connah’s Quay, North Wales, is a Liverpool fan. He now bears the mark of a Chelsea player, and that must hurt. Suarez And Ivanovic is a playground game a bit like Cops And Robbers. All the cool kids
