Luis Suarez believes he has only made two mistakes in his professional career and they are both behind him now.
The forward has been involved in some high-profile incidents since he moved to Liverpool in 2011, but claims some of them were "like a movie that people in England believed in.
He was quoted as telling Uruguayan radio: "Let me tell you, I've made only two mistakes in my career. My first was when i was playing for Ajax and I bit an opponent. My second was when I bit (Branislav) Ivanovic. Those two were my only two mistakes as a footballer."
The bite on Ivanovic happened in April last year and resulted in a 10 match ban for the Uruguayan. It was similar to the incident during his time in Holland, where he was charged for biting an opponent in an Eredivisie match. He was banned for seven matches.
Those weren't the only controversies the player has been involved in, though. In the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Suarez was sent off for blocking a goal-bound effort off the line with his hand.
The resulting penalty was missed and Uruguay progressed to the Semi-finals.
The 27-year-old was also at the centre of alleged racist abuse towards Manchester United's Patrice Evra, something which he was later banned for eight matches for. But Suarez insists he didn't make a mistake, claiming "all other things were like a movie that people in England believed in.
"The case with (Patrice) Evra was all false. I was accused without proof. But that's in the past. I was sad at that moment, but I'm happy today," he said.
"Now people in England can't talk about me because I'm not doing anything wrong. They have to talk about me only as a footballer."
And Suarez as a footballer is certainly one to talk about. He is the league's current top scorer despite missing the first six games of the season and has scored 30 goals in 32 Liverpool games in all competitions, with many believing he has been the standout performer this campaign.
