The player of national team of Italy Giorgio Chiellini recalled the controversial episode during the 2014 world Cup when he was bitten by Uruguay striker Luis Suarez.
“Anger’s a part of football, I wouldn’t call it illegal. To defeat an opponent, you have to be smart.
I admire his resourcefulness. Without it Suarez will be a regular player.
I took care of Cavani for most of the match, another guy who’s hard to patronize and which we could not resist. Suddenly I noticed I was bitten on the shoulder. It happened, that’s all. So his strategy in the fight.
You can say that I have the same strategy. We like Suarez, I like strikers like him. I called him a few days after the game, but he didn’t need to apologize. I also behave like*kin son and proud of it. Antics and a bit of sports rage – it’s all part of the game. I wouldn’t call it cheating. You need to be creative to overcome the opponent,” wrote Chiellini in his autobiography.
Recall that in that match, Uruguay won with the score 1:0.
