Luis Suarez Apologizes for Biting Giorgio Chiellini in World Cup

Soccer player Luis Suarez has sent out a public apology to fellow player Giorgio Chiellini after biting him during a 2014 World Cup game last week.

“After several days of being home with my family, I have had the opportunity to regain my calm and reflect about the reality of what occurred during the Italy-Uruguay match on 24 June 2014,” the 27-year-old Uruguayan player, who was banned from the rest of the tournament, wrote on Twitter.

“Independent from the fallout and the contradicting declarations that have surfaced during these past days, all of which have been without the intention of interfering with the good performance of my national team, the truth is that my colleague Giorgio Chiellini suffered the physical result of a bite in the collision with me,” he continued.

“For this: I deeply regret what occurred. I apologize to Giorgio Chiellini and the entire football family. I vow to the public that there will never again be another incident like,” Luiz added.
