Suarez apologizes for Ivanovic bite but Liverpool future hanging by a thread
Anthony Hopkins’ wrote himself into the annals of history with his brilliant portrayal of Hannibal Lecter and Luis Suarez is hell bent on achieving a similar legacy from his football career. The Uruguayan’s inexplicable bite on Branislav Ivanovic during Liverpool’s 2-2 draw against Chelsea overshadowed the fact that the striker had an assist and a 96th minute goal to his name. The 26 year old Tweeted this in the immediate aftermath of the incident: “I'm sad for what happened this afternoon, I apologize Ivanovic and all football world for my inexcusable behaviour. I'm so sorry about it,” and he also added that he had apologized to Ivanovic over the phone. But that isn’t going to prevent the FA from taking retrospective action and his Liverpool career might be over too as a similar biting incident at Ajax ended his tenure in the Eredivisie.
