Luis SuarezLiverpool striker Luis Suarez has been banned for 10 games and fined for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic’s upper right arm. He apologised on Monday after he was banned and fined, “For my unacceptable behaviour yesterday, the club has fined me today, I have asked the club to donate the money to the Hillsborough Family Support Group”, he wrote on twitter on Monday.

It is not the first time he is banned for his bad behaviour. In October 2011 he was banned 8 games for racially abusing Manchester United’s Patrick Evra. And he refused to shake Evra’s hand.

The 26 year old Uruguayan striker has done so many misbehaviours like defending the ball with his hands. During the World Cup in South Africa in 2010, he defended the ball with his hands on purpose during a quarter final match in July 2010 between his country (Uruguay) and Ghana 3 minutes before the final whistle. Ghana was awarded a penalty but was missed by Asamoah Gyan.

He was sent off in that match and was seen in the footage on his way to changing rooms celebrating after Gyan missed that penalty. That game ended in penalties and was won by Uruguay. Had he not saved that ball with his hands, Ghana was probably going to win that game and qualify for semi finals.

Fans are not happy about this striker’s behaviour. They say FIFA should intervene and end Suarez’s career completely . They ask how many players he is going to bite before his time to retire comes.

Some people have commented on this player’s behaviour, saying perhaps he is serving the Devil because devil worshipers live on human blood. Other soccer fans are complaining that the disciplinary committee is not doing it’s job right.
