Luis Suarez used as inspiration for vampire in children's book

Published Add your comment

We have seen Luis Suarez in a myriad of different roles. A lethal striker, a dirty footballer and even a charitable man.

One suit he hasn't worn yet is that of a vampire, but he will soon enough, with a children's writer writing a book with him as a villain.

Monstrous Morals

The book will be next in writer Peter Barton's Monstrous Morals series, according to the Daily Mail. The series is based on the adventures of different children with bad habits and the way they get rid of them. The aim of the book is to scare children out of bad habits like day-dreaming, nose-picking and flatulence.

It goes without saying that we hope there is one is for biting.

Inspiration strikers

Barton supposedly got the idea when the forward etched his teeth in Italy's Giorgio Chiellini shoulder at last year's World Cup. Daisy McCloud, the book's protagonist, is a daydreamer and will have to deal with Luis, a vampire based on Suarez.

Suarez has had his share of controversies even before the incident at the World Cup that got him banned from any football-related activity for a number of months.

Other incidents

He's been called up for headbutting a referee in a youth game in his homeland, and more famously for racially abusing Patrice Evra whilst the pair were Premier League rivals. Then of course there are other bites on Otman Bakkal and Branislav Ivanovic.

"I just hope he sees the funny side of it and the idea doesn't come back to bite me," Barton joked about his new book.

Football fans, is Suarez a changed man now that he's moved to Barcelona? Let us know what you think of him in the comments box below.
