It’s always interesting to argue with Luis Suarez’s stats, which include leading the Premier League in goals despite missing the first few games through injury.
Although he has caused controversy in the past and continues to do so, Uruguay and former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been involved in a lot of controversies in his career .
Take a look at the most notable controversy that Luis Suarez has sparked in his career thus far
1. Goal-line handball
Ghana had taken Uruguay to extra time in the last eight to become the first African team to reach a World Cup semi-final.
Dominic Adiyiah‘s header in the final seconds tied the game 1-1. Suarez, playing goalie, knocked aside the ball.
Asamoah Gyan missed Ghana’s penalty, and the Uruguayan was seen wildly celebrating on the sideline before leaving.
Suarez was booed practically every time he touched the ball in Uruguay’s third-place play-off match.
2. Bites Branislav Ivanovic
While playing for Liverpool against Chelsea at Anfield, Suarez was discovered fraternizing with identical conduct after he had stopped biting.
While fighting Branislav Ivanovic, Luis Suarez had to resort to biting Ivanovic’s arm.
Video evidence proved that the match official had missed a second time.
His three-match sentence for violent conduct was considered “obviously insufficient” by a disciplinary panel.
3. Biting Otman Bakkal
Suarez’s bite on Ivanovic was awful enough, but it wasn’t the first time he had bitten someone.
Ajax striker Otman Bakkal attempted to take a piece out of Bakkal’s shoulder during a meeting of players versus PSV, adding to the already fierce animosity.
Video evidence shows Bakkal’s absolute disbelief, but there was another altercation going on that the referee didn’t witness.
Eventually, he was banned for seven games when the Dutch tabloid De Telegraaf dubbed him the “Cannibal of Ajax.”
In the two months that followed, he left Ajax and signed with Liverpool.
4. Giorgio Chiellini Bite, Italy, World Cup 2014 Group Stages
Once again, it appears that Suarez’s cannibalistic instincts have returned.
Suarez seemed to bite Chiellini in an off-the-ball altercation after Italy had been reduced to 10 men.
The incident was overlooked by the referee and his assistants, and Uruguay scored just a few minutes afterward.
As a result, Italy was eliminated from the World Cup for the second time in a row.
5. Racially abuses Patrice Evra
With Suarez, there is never a dull moment. It was found that the Uruguayan forward had racially abused Manchester United midfielder Patrice Evra during a match between the two clubs in October of 2011.
He was fined £40,000 and banned for eight games.
While fighting with Patrice Evra on the pitch, it appears that Luis Suarez uttered the word “negro” many times, according to a 115-page report produced by the FA in December 2011
