Liverpool ranks criticize Luis Suarez after biting incident
Liverpool legend Graeme Souness labeled Luis Suarez’s actions as “embarrassing” after beloved Kop striker was caught biting the forearm of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during a 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday. The former skipper and manager accused Luis Suarez of doing long lasting damage to Liverpool’s image in the eyes of the world.
Luis Suarez’s action has been condemned by Liverpool players and management following the Sunday game, where the Uruguayan played the role of a villain and a hero in a pulsating battle against Chelsea.
Graeme Souness believes the chances of Luis Suarez staying at Liverpool beyond this summer are very low after the biting incident. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has already admitted that he will not hesitate to sell off any players that besmirch the club’s image and values.
Meanwhile, Graeme Souness took the opportunity to sink his teeth into Luis Suarez (not literally) on Sky Sports after the Sunday game.
“Embarrassing,” Graeme Souness said. “He's making it very difficult for him to stay at Liverpool. Last chance saloon. He's putting the good name of this club in jeopardy. People will be talking about this for a long, long time and it'll show Liverpool in a very bad light.”
In his eight-year long professional football career, Luis Suarez has already made his name known in the circles of notoriety. Back when he used to play for Ajax, Luis Suarez got himself banned for seven matches for biting PSV Eindhoven player Otman Bakkal. Later, the Uruguayan received an infamous red card on handling the ball in the World Cup in a contest that put his national into the semifinals. The 26-year-old has also been found guilty of racial abuse of Manchester United defender Patrice Evra for which he served an eight-game ban.
“This is not the first time he's bitten someone in a football match,” Graeme Souness added. “This puts him in the last chance saloon as a Liverpool player. He's risking everything this great football club stands for. That's what children do in a pram.
He must be on the borderline of doing something mad or crazy every time he's out there. For all the weeks for that to happen... He looked to take a chunk out of him. That's scary. Liverpool will suffer as these pictures will be beamed around the world.”
