Uruguay striker Luis Suarez faces severe penalties for biting an opponent, Otman Bakkal, from the Netherlands PSV Eindhoven team.
Luis Suarez, the Ajax Club Team and Uruguay forward caused controversy in the World Cup when he scored a goal with his hand, eliminating Ghana.
The referee of Saturday’s match did not see the incident, as he was dealing with the aftermath of a foul play that resulted in a red card. Suarez was not punished for gnawing at his rival during the game, but he’s been sanctioned by his team with an undisclosed fine, and will sit on the bench for two games. Suárez could still face sanctions from the league or a starring role in the next Twilight movie.
This wasn’t the only violent act perpetrated by Suárez in the game; a few minutes later, he allegedly knocked out Ibrahim Afellay, after a high-speed foul. Noticee (in second :29 below) that after being bitten, Bakkal doesn’t hesitate in taunting Suárez, stepping on him as he ties his shoe.
The highly regarded Dutch daily De Telegraaf branded Suarez the “Cannibal of Ajax” in its Monday edition and called for his club and the Netherlands Football Federation to take action against him.
