The Uruguayan has been embroiled in two separate incidents of biting an opponent, with the latest coming at the tail end of last season when he bit the Blues stopper, and earned himself a 10-game ban in the process.

However, that was not the first time that Suarez has been known to bite an opponents, having done so during his time at Dutch side Ajax, biting PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal on the shoulder in a goalless draw in November 2010 in what turned out to be his last game for the club, shortly before joining Liverpool in January 2011.

And now the PFA and Football Writer’s Player of the Year winner has expressed regret over the incidents for the first time, and insisted that those days are behind him now as he looks forward to being a better role model for younger fans.

“For the kids, I want to be a good man, a good father, of whom they are proud,” Suarez said.

“I feel so ashamed about the mistakes I’ve made, biting an opponent twice.

“Later, when you realise that your children will see those pictures, it causes you even more pain.”
