Put your hand up if you thought we’d heard the last of the Luis Suarez racism saga? Yep, me too. Yet, for some god forsaken reason it’s been dragged up again by the buck-toothed bigot himself. Suarez gave a bizarre interview where he blamed Patrice Evra, the media, football politics and Manchester United for his 8 game ban last season. He did not blame the racial abuse he hurled towards Patrice Evra.
Laughably, he even stated that everyone in Manchester respects him. What a load of fucking horsecrap. It only takes a quick look at the social network du jour or a mention of his name in a boozer in the city to get the true flavour of Manchester sentiment towards Suarez. He is universally and totally hated. There isn’t even the tiniest residue of any respect, respect that was in short supply anyway given the lad’s history of cheating to win (vs Ghana, World Cup) and biting opponents (for Ajax). Throw that claim straight out.
Suarez goes on to claim that he did not refuse to shake Patrice Evra’s hand before their reunion battle. I’m not even going to waste my breath on that one. You can all see the YouTube video of the incident in question and make up your own mind. Despite this, and DESPITE SUAREZ’S APOLOGY, some scousers still feel that Evra is to blame for this incident. Just when the furore had died down, Luis’ stupid words have dragged it all up once more.
Poor baby Luis also played the sympathy card, claiming that he and his wife were in tears for a week following the incident. Good.
Luis claimed that it was “all arranged against him”, both with regards to the original allegation, and with Handshakegate. Why would anyone do that? Is he stupid? It’s not like Liverpool were close title challengers that we were in desperate need to derail. They were also rans last season, even before the ban kicked in.
The fact that Suarez is prepared to play the victim and the sympathy card, and completely turn a blind eye to the fact that he racially abused a fellow professional shows that he is complete vermin. His behaviour throughout his career has been disgraceful. Don’t let the scousers fool you into thinking that this was some sort of isolated incident.
Most of all, however, it displays a complete lack of moral fiber and understanding of the situation that, months after the incident, he still can’t see what is wrong with calling a black man a nigger. He doesn’t even mention this. Not once has he apologised. Not even for the “misunderstanding”.
Hopefully the FA will now throw the book at him for bringing the game into disrepute, suggesting that the FA and Manchester United are in cahoots on some kind of corrupt conspiracy against Liverpool, and for stirring, once again, the flames of racial ignorance on Merseyside.
