Malcolm Dawson writes….I have no sympathy for Luis Suarez. A serial biter deserves all he gets.
Even as he withdrew his teeth he fell to the ground hoping to fool the referee into believing he was the one sinned against. That’s the sort of behaviour you hope a four-year-old is about to grow out of.
I might even argue that a four-month ban is eight months too short. There is no doubt his stupidity and childish behaviour will cost Liverpool dear in the coming season. Not only will he miss more than 25 per cent of their League campaign but his absence in European ties will be crucial.
But I’m not bothered about Liverpool. What I am bothered about is that his absence from the Liverpool teamsheet can only mean that Brendan Rodgers and the Liverpool owners will be less inclined to listen to any offer that SAFC might be making for Fabio Borini.
The latest media speculation is that we have offered £8 million for the Italian and there was no guarantee that Borini would be brought back anyway, but whatever chance there was has surely been lessened by the petulance of Suarez.
