British Press Invented Luis Suarez Bite On Giorgio Chiellini Claims Uruguay Report

There is no proof that the Liverpool forward did anything wrong says the defence from South America.

The Uruguayan press have launched a scathing attack on the British media and have claimed that Luis Suarez’s bite on Giorgio Chiellini was invented.

It appeared that the Liverpool forward bit Italy defender Chiellini during the 2014 World Cup clash between Uruguay and the Italians on Tuesday.

Suarez has previous when it comes to biting opponents having been banned twice before for similar incidents, with the most recently coming in 2013 when the 27-year-old sat out 10 matches for sinking his teeth into Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic.

Yet reports from the striker’s home country have now claimed that there is no proof to say the South American has done it again and it is the press – in particular the British – that are fabricating the story.

“In the TV replay, as viewed in the press area, it appears that Luisito’s face comes in contact with Chiellini without it being clear whether he bites him as was claimed by those – especially the English – who were keen to play down Uruguay’s victory,” a report from Tenfield read.

“In our view the TV picture is not clear as to whether or not Suárez bites the shoulder of the Italian defender. Note how Suárez stumbles after jumping for the ball and how his face hits the shoulder of the Italian player.

“British reporters, in the press conference, asked Óscar Tabárez three times about the incident, saying that: ‘Suárez bit Chiellini.’ Their intention was Fifa should expel Luisito.

“It would be good if these Englishmen remember how they won the World Cup in 1966 with a ball which was not a goal.”

FIFA have confirmed they have opened a disciplinary investigation into the incident, with Suarez likely to face another lengthy ban if found guilty.
