Ahead of Man U - Liverpool tomorrow I thought this might be an appropriate time to go on a bit of a rant on a player who I have grown to absolutely despise.... Luis Suarez. This guy is something else. For those of you not familiar with Suarez, he is a talented Liverpool striker who was recently suspended for 8 games for directing racial slurs (I am sure they can be found if you scour) towards Man U defender Patrice Evra. Suarez, of course, was quick to deny the allegations. However, his story of the events, wavered and then wavered some more and with a number of witnesses actually hearing him say these things to Evra as well as video footage and his own eventual admission he was found guilty and suspended.
Then came the excuses. His first beauty being that use of such language was commonplace in Uruguay where he is from. Really? First of all, I am not familiar enough with Uruguayan culture to know if that's true (if it is you need to get with the times Uruguay), but I am sure Suarez is not going around calling his friends what he called Evra. If he is I don't imagine they remain friends very long.
Then came one of the most audacious comments I have ever heard. Upon returning from his 8 match ban and doing this: (click on image to view)
Suarez went on the radio and said this little doozy "I knew what I did and there is a kind of football law that says 'what happens on the pitch, stays on the pitch and that's the end of the story',”. Shocking. This kind of stuff doesn't belong anywhere, let alone on a football pitch. The idea that football is some sort of brotherhood that should protect Suarez is insane. Listen buddy, just cause you look like a neanderthal does not necessitate that you have to act like one. Ok I am done.
2-1 Man U by the way.
