Suarez Speaks to El Pais: We Were Worn Out…
Luis Suarez has reportedly spoken to Spanish newspaper El Pais shortly after the incident in which he apparently bit Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini on the shoulder, reports the BBC.
Suarez seemed to avoid the obvious question, instead suggesting that the result was a testament to his teammates and the hard work they put in. Uruguay ultimately won the clash after Diego Godin headed home from a corner eliminating the Italians.”
This is not the first time that Suarez has had a moment of controversy at a World Cup. In 2010, he was responsible for Ghana’s elimination, in part, after he handled a goal-bound effort in the final minute of their Quarter Final tie with Uruguay. Suarez was sent off for the incident.
Suarez said: ”Uruguay is celebrating, we have qualified and now we are going to celebrate this moment because next we have to start thinking about our next opponents.
“The truth is that the team worked incredibly hard and we deserve it. After making a bad start to the group against Costa Rica, the best we deserved was this and we showed that we deserve to stay in this World Cup.
“The heat was incredible and we were worn out.”
Sometimes, you get worn out enough, you just want to bite someone.
