Luis Suarez has embarrassed Liverpool, says Man United legend Paul Scholes
Manchester United legend Paul Scholes says banning Luis Suárez for the rest of the World Cup isn't enough
Luis Suarez has embarrassed Uruguay, Liverpool and his family after his latest biting controversy, according to Paul Scholes.
The 27-year-old appeared to bite Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini before Uruguay went on to score a late winner in a 1-0 victory over 10-man Italy in Group D.
People will remember Suarez now for his biting antics at this World Cup rather than his supreme footballing ability
Suarez, who scored 31 Premier League games last year, has already been banned for 17 games during his career for biting incidents at Ajax and current club Liverpool.
And Manchester United legend Scholes called on Fifa to ban the Uruguay international beyond the World Cup.
“Luis Suarez was banned for 10 games for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in April 2013. That obviously wasn’t enough,” Scholes wrote in his Paddy Power blog.
“On Tuesday night, with the biting incident on Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay’s Group D clash, Suarez embarrassed his club, country and family.
“He will feel terrible, and the entire incident is such a shame because he’s a tremendous player.
“But people will remember Suarez now for his biting antics at this World Cup rather than his supreme footballing ability.
“Banning him for the rest of the World Cup is not enough, because Colombia will beat Uruguay in their next game anyway.”
