Uruguay Star Luis Suarez

Luis Suarez Apology

Uruguay superstar Luis Suarez is changing his story AGAIN -- and now ADMITS he bit Italian player Giorgio Chiellini during a World Cup match last week. 

Initially, Suarez insisted there was NO BITE -- despite strong video evidence -- saying he simply lost his balance and accidentally hit his face against Chiellini's shoulder.  

But now -- after FIFA banned him for 4 months -- it seems Suarez has finally come to his senses ... because he just issued the following statement on his Twitter page:

"After several days of being home with my family, I have had the opportunity to regain my calm and reflect about the reality of what occurred during the Italy-Uruguay match on 24 June 2014.

Independant from the fallout and the contradicting declarations that have surfaced during these past days, all of which have been without the intention of interfering with the good performance of my national team, 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 like."

I don't think he can make that promise because I'm not sure he is in control of it. Surely he would have stopped if he could

This idiot should have been banned for life. It's the third time he bit someone in a soccer game. Three strikes and you're out.

unfortunately, he gets exactly the reaction on the pitch that he sets out for. (causes a distraction, then he or his team mate gets the goal.) it's his MO, and it won't change. such a brilliant player, but also such a poor sportsman.

It's not his first time doing this! He has done this before and should be banned for life.

Give the guy a break, if he doesn't put those horse teef of his to work they grow uncontrollably you see, so he's really doing it so he doesn't end up with walrus tusks.
