Suarez controversies

Afp
Thursday, June 26, 2014

* Suarez was dubbed "the cannibal of Ajax" after he bit PSV Einhoven's Otman Bakkal on the shoulder in a Dutch league game in November 2010. The referee did not immediately see the incident, but Suarez was later handed a seven game ban.

* In April 2013, Suarez bit Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic's arm in a Premier League for Liverpool. He was given a 10 game suspension for that offence.

* The Uruguayan, considered one of the world's most devastating goalscorers, has also been in trouble over on the field comments. He hurled racial abuse at Manchester United's Patrice Evra during a Premier League game in October 2011. Suarez insisted the term he used was one often deployed in Uruguay. The English FA banned him for eight matches and fined him $73,012.69. He refused to shake hands with Evra when the two teams met later that season.

* Suarez stopped a certain Ghanaian goal with his hand on the goalline in the last minute of extra-time in the 2010 World Cup quarter-final. He was sent off but Asamoah Gyan's penalty was saved and the Ghanaians lost the penalty shootout. "I made the save of the tournament," was Suarez's unrepentant comment after the match.
