Luis Suarez discusses his toilet habits in Uruguayan TV appearance

Published 1 Comments

Luis Suarez has been banned for biting three different players but away from the pitch, the Barcelona striker isn’t quite so dirty.

In an interview with a Uruguayan TV station, the topic of conversation quickly turned to Suarez’s toilet habits.

Quite how that happened isn’t clear, but the interview got even weirder when Suarez revealed he only urinates while sitting down.

The 29-year-old claims to be a clean-freak but Otman Bakkal, Branislav Ivanovic and Giorgio Chiellini, the victims of Suarez’s gnashers, might bet to differ.

But Suarez, a father of two, admits his children are the reason why his toilet routine is so disciplined.

“When peeing I am a clean man,” the former Liverpool striker said, per The Sun.

“This is an issue of hygiene for me because I have two children. I do not want it to squirt on the ground, so I pee sitting down.

“Children play anywhere and I do not want them to get sick.”

That actually makes a lot of sense.


Suarez would have plenty more fans if he was as polished on the pitch.

It’s been nearly two years since the striker bit Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup, earning him a four-month ban from football, but the images of Suarez sitting up and clutching his teeth will last his entire existence.

Suarez discussed his bites on Bakkal in 2010, Ivanovic in 2013 and Chiellini a year later in his autobiography ‘Crossing The Line’, admitting his actions are often the result of his pent-up frustration.

“I know biting appals a lot of people, but it’s relatively harmless,” Suarez controversially said. “Or at least it was in the incidents I was involved in.

“The adrenaline levels in a game can be so high; the pulse is racing and sometimes the brain doesn’t keep up. The pressure mounts and there is no release valve.

“In 2010, I was frustrated because we were drawing what was a very important game, and we were on a bad run. I wanted to do everything right that day, and it felt as though I was doing everything wrong. The pent-up frustration and feeling that it was my fault reached a point where I couldn’t contain it any more.”

Suarez is on fire this season

Suarez has made headlines for all the right reasons since joining Barcelona in 2014, earning plaudits for his impressive work rate and goal tally.

The former Ajax man has scored 43 goals this season and, alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar, is spearheading Barca’s hunt for back-to-back trebles.

Unlike at Liverpool, Suarez isn’t the main man at the Camp Nou and this has certainly calmed his personality.

This, and the fact that Barca are in contention for multiples trophies every season.
