Luis Suarez issues apology for biting incident

Posted July 1st, 2014 @ 9:29am

Uruguay's star striker Luis Suarez is apologizing for biting Italian player Giorgio Chiellini in last week's game. It's also a huge admission of guilt for Suarez who had initially denied biting him. But it's hard to argue with video evidence and FIFA handed him a four month sentence.

Suarez released a statement saying, "The truth is that my colleague Giorgio Chiellini suffered the physical result of a bite in the collision he suffered with me. For this I deeply regret what occurred. I apologize to Giorgio Chiellini and the entire football family. I vow to the public that there will never again be another incident."
