The Vampire of Monte Video

Most people are familiar with the idea of a biting tackle. However, Uruguayan international Luiz Suarez of Liverpool Football Club has given a literal meaning to the term when he sank his teeth into the arm of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.




It is the second time that the teeth of Suarez have locked onto the anatomy of an opponent on the field of play.While an Ajax player in the Dutch league he munched on a member of the opposing PSV side.

Suarez has since apologised but it comes too late to offset what is likely to be a lengthy ban from the game.

In a pre season friendly the League of Ireland took on Liverpool FC at
Dalymount Park Phibsborough,Dublin. The league team was made up of a
selection of players from several League of Ireland clubs and was captained
by the legendary John Giles. Liverpool won the game by 2 goals to nil.
The scorers were Hansen and McDermott.
