Luis Suarez bite wins big for lucky bettor

Football News

Things were going so well for Luis Suarez. We were all starting to warm to the Uruguayan striker again after courageously rushing back from a knee operation to score twice in a great display against England. Then he had to go and throw it all away and sink his teeth into an opponent yet again. But one lucky lad will be over the moon by the Suarez bite.

Thomas Syversen from Norway - @Syvers11 on Twitter - made an incredible bet before the World Cup, backing the Liverpool striker to revert back to his dirty tricks during the tournament at the massive odds of 175/1.

And Giorgio Chiellini’s pain will mean little to the Norwegian who has pocketed a healthy 5600kr. Here's a picture of the winning betting slip.

The Trilogy

This was the third time that Suarez has been caught biting an opponent. The first time his victim was Otman Bakkal during a match between Suarez’s Ajax and PSV Eindhoven. Next on the menu was Branislav Ivanovic of Chelsea, and it seems that Juventus man Chiellini was the dessert of the Suarez set menu.

The precedent is there for the 27-year old to be on the end of a long ban from the FIFA disciplinary committee. He was given a seven game suspension by the Dutch FA and a ten game spell in the stands from the Premier League after the Bite at the Bridge.

If FIFA actually step up and give one of the games best players a ban worthy of his actions is another thing entirely. It really wouldn’t come as a surprise if they were to cite it as just violent conduct and suspend him for just two or three matches.

If justice were to be served then the striker should play no part in the rest of the tournament and then some. The Eredivisie and Premier League didn’t stand for Suarez’s actions and neither should football’s governing body.

One man from Norway won’t be complaining however, he’ll thanking Suarez all the way to the bank instead for the striker’s Dracula impersonation.
