Liverpool and Uruguay marksman, Luis Suarez, has explained what necessitated his biting of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic and has consequently expressed gross regret over the incident.
The act, the second in the player’s career in two different leagues-Holland and the EPL- has dragged the player’s name in the mud among the media.
He is not likable among Ghanaian sporting populace following his infamous intervention of Dominique Adiyiah goal bound strike that would have sent the Black Stars and Africa to a historic semi finals.
The Reds star’s unhappiness at Anfield, having been subjected to excessive attention from reporters and the often-criticism has earned him Chelsea striker Fernando Torres’ sympathy.
Suarez indicated in an interview that: “The incident with Ivanovic – I know I made a mistake, it was me, my fault, and he did not do anything to me.
“I was angry because I had given away a penalty for hand ball. I was the cause of the penalty against my team – I saw red and completely lost it. I can’t really explain it and I am so sorry,” he added.
Torres says that he understands Luis Suarez‘s desire to leave Liverpool rather than continue to deal with the English media.
The Reds talisman outlined in May his preference to seek an exit rather than be the focus of reporters after a controversy-stained period in the Premier League, while teammate Pepe Reina also admits that he sees why the forward might want to leave.
“I never had a problem with the media, the media had a problem with me,” Torres told reporters.
“That affects your family, your friends, it’s not easy.
