Liverpool striker, Luis Alberto Suarez has accepted his 10-game ban insisting that he is “truly sorry” for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic. He will be unavailable for premiership action till September.
His full statement:
I am truly very sorry about the incident with Branislav Ivanovic. I hope that all the people who I have offended at Anfield last Sunday will grant me forgiveness and I again repeat my personal apology to Branislav
I know that all the things that are happening to me in England will help me improve my conduct on the field. Right now, I just want to focus on becoming a better footballer on and off the field.
I would like to explain to everybody that I decided to accept the ban because whilst 10 games is clearly greater than those bans given in past cases where players have actually been seriously injured, I acknowledge that my actions were not acceptable on the football pitch so I do not want to give the wrong impression to people by making an appeal.
I really want to learn from what has happened in the last two and a half years, many things have been said and written about me, I just tried to do my best on the field. I hope to come back early to play.
