Fangs for the memories! Suarez faces cup exit


Shane Brennan

ONE of the world’s greatest sports men is facing a  fall from grace.

Just after a season where he was redeemed for a previous biting incident Luis Suarez's formidable teeth have let him down again.

In the last group d game of this thrilling world cup with Uruguay heading through to the next round Suarez took a bite out of his Italian opponent Giorgio Chiellini.

Suarez was not disciplined during the match for the incident.

But the world football governing body, FIFA, have confirmed that Suarez will be charged under their disciplinary procedures.

He was charged for an apparent breach of art. 48 and/or art. 57 of the FIFA disciplinary code during the match.

The player and the Uruguayan FA have been invited to provide their position and any documentary evidence they deem relevant by 5pm June 25, Brasilia time.

The Free Press asked people in Ruthin what  they thought of Suarez’s actions.

Aron Hughes,25, from Ruthin said: “He should be banned for a year after biting for a third time. He should be kicked out of the world cup. I support Arsenal and he’s a cracking player but I wouldn’t want him at Arsenal.”

Marc Jones, 52, from Wrexham said: “He needs to be banned it’s not acceptable what he did and he has previous for this sort of thing as well. You can’t go around doing things like that si they need to discipline and send a message.”

Rich Hughes-Moseley, 40, Ruthin said: “You can’t defend the indefensible. If it happens once you could claim it was an accident but this is the third time it has happened. We have to be conscious about his mental health. If you had a child in the school playground biting kids you would be concerned. It’s just weird.”

The incident didn''t just shock the residents of Ruthin, it was commented on around the world.
