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.

Uruguay's Luis Suarez Banned From Remaining World Cup Games for Biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini

Luis Suarez, Uruguayan 2014 World Cup player, has been officially banned from the sport for four months for biting Italian player Giorgio Chiellini during their game on Monday (June 24).

The 27-year-old player has been banned for “football-related activities” and will rule him out of the World Cup as well as the start of the soccer season. Luis is also being banned from even entering the stadium. He has been fined $111,000 in addition.

Video of the incident shows that it is sort of unclear what actually happened during the game, but, it appears as if Luis charged Giorgio and ducked his head towards his shoulder. You can then see both men grasping their appendages in pain. See a video of the incident here.
