There is good news coming out of the soccer world … Barcelona’s Luis Suarez has vowed not to chomp on the flesh of opposing players again.
According to ESPNFC, the striker told reporters on Tuesday that he has sought expert help for his issues and is done with the hannibal-like behavior.
"I say to fans, don't worry, because I won't do that anymore," Suarez said. "I spoke to my psychologist and he said I had to face it and say sorry. I did -- now I would rather focus on the present, which is Barcelona.”
The 27-year-old has been serving a suspension from the game for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during a World Cup match in June.
The bite was not Suarez’s first, or second, but third offense.
The International Federation of Association Football then banned the athlete from any football-related activities for four months and imposed a fine of 100,000 Swiss francs ($112,000 U.S.).
Hopefully now, the Uruguayan soccer star has learned his lesson and will stay true to his word of not biting his opponents anymore.
