Suarez still unhappy about FIFA ban for biting Chiellini

Matt Stanger

Luis Suarez says biting Giorgio Chiellini was ‘the worst moment of his career’, but still contests that his punishment was too severe.

In an interview with Spanish radio station Cadena COPE, the striker said: “The bite on Chiellini was the worst moment of my career. I let myself down, my country, my wife and my children.

“The bites were partly my fault and partly (owing to) the provocation of Ivanovic and Chiellini.

“Someone who stabs or a hooligan is not treated worse than the way FIFA treated me. I didn’t kill anyone.”

Suarez also revealed that Real Madrid were in the hunt for his signature last summer, but his heart was set on a move to Barcelona.

“Madrid were very interested in me, but my dream was always Barça,” he said.

“When I heard the name of Barça, I did not hesitate at any moment.

“Barça are the best team in the world, without a doubt. I am at Barcelona and I am obliged to achieve all of the titles.”
