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.

    “suffered the physical result of a bite in the collision with me”
    BS. It’s the third or fourth time his teeth have “collided” with other players. He’s a rabid rodent.

  • Pamela

    No wonder he bites, those teeth are like Mr. Rogers and Bugs Bunny in one. Chompers Suarez!

  • Andromeda

    He gives me the creeps.

  • Dee

    Leave it to “Beaver!” Look at those teeth. He should be ashamed of himself.

  • Gina

    I never saw the footage but Luis looks shocked and in pain over the bite. Judging by how big & buck his teeth are, I can actually believe that the bite may have been an accident due to the collison. But like I said, I haven’t seen the tape.
