2014 World Cup Luis Suarez

Apologizes for bite

30 Jun, 2014

Suarez offers a public apology for biting Giorgio Chiellini in Uruguay’s World Cup game against Italy on June 24. The apology comes after Suarez was banned for nine games and suspended from all soccer-related activities for four months for the incident.  

The truth is that my colleague Giorgio Chiellini suffered the physical result of a bite in the collision he suffered with me. 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 this.
