Suarez Was Banned For Ten Games After a Moment so Shocking the Prime Minister Intervened. 

Date:

Today marks nine years since Luis Suárez made the headlines worldwide for all the wrong reasons following a Liverpool Premier League game. 

Luis Suárez bit Branislav Ivanovich against Chelsea nine years ago and was sanctioned against playing for ten matches. Then, on an unforgettable day for the Uruguayan, Liverpool won a corner in the 69th minute, and Suarez tangled with Ivanovich before sinking his teeth into the defender’s right arm. 

Referee Kevin Friend didn’t see the clash, but the FA investigated and subsequently banned the forward for ten games. It was a further stain on Suarez’s chastening reputation and followed a similar ban of seven games for biting PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal’s shoulder while playing for Ajax in 2010. The striker was condemned around the footballing world and apologized. 

In an initial statement, he said: “I am deeply sorry for my inexcusable behaviour during our match against Chelsea earlier today. I apologize to my manager, playing colleagues, and everyone at Liverpool for letting them down.”
