Ajax forward Luis Suarez suddenly had a desire for some blood and bit PSV Eindhoven’s Otman Bakkal on the neck/shoulder area. A crazy moment that recalls Mike Tyson, vampires and Dracula. What in the world came over Suarez? What was he thinking?
Suarez was suspended for two matches and fined an undisclosed sum, with the money going to, I guess, the Red Cross. Really though, has something like this ever happened in football before? There was the biting incident a few years back, but this was in celebration in Sevilla after a goal, not as a vampire like attack. Of course it too was still strange, as Francisco Gallardo bit Jose Antonio Reyes private area.
Just this week Eto’o sort of lost it and headbutted a player Zidane style. I’m hoping there’s not a rash of biting incidents in the coming weeks as players copy Suarez.
Update: Suarez has taken a liking to the arm of Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic. It looked good enough to eat. Yes, Suarez has bitten someone again.
Suarez now has to wear this dog collar type protective hood during matches so he doesn’t bite someone again. It’s knid of like a snood but plastic.
