Suarez plays victim again while re-opening race row

Luis Suarez has re-opened the race row again, despite being ordered by Liverpool’s representatives not to discuss it.

The Uruguayan admitted to calling Patrice Evra a “negro” during last season’s fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool at Anfield. Throughout the game Suarez and Evra argued constantly which lead to the Liverpool striker losing the plot. Not only did Suarez kick and punch Evra, but he slapped him around the head also.

After being reported to the FA for racially abusing Evra, Suarez argued that he was calling the United left-back a “negro” in a friendly manner, just like he would call his black friends back in his homeland. Once found guilty, Suarez picked up an 8 match ban and a fine worth £40,000.

However, speaking to Uruguayan TV he accused Manchester United of wielding their political power to get him suspended and fined. “Manchester United command the politics of sports in England,” said Suarez. “You have to accept, there’s no option.”

That wasn’t the only issue Suarez spoke about during his television appearance. He claimed: A) United are the political power in the Premier League. B) The Reds did all they could to get him banned. C) He was the victim in the handshake incident. All Evra’s fault. D) His wife and himself were reduced to tears by the ordeal. E) United fans offered him respect.

Reaction to each point expressed by Luis Suarez

A.  Ridiculous claim to make, especially after admitting to calling Evra a “negro.” If Suarez could expand on why he believes this, it might make it easier to argue with but no, he just feels hard done-by. The FA didn’t have any other choice. Racism is not acceptable.

B. Heh, typical Liverpool. Blame everyone but themselves. Maybe, Suarez, if you kept your mouth shut and controlled yourself better on the pitch you wouldn’t have gotten into this situation. Suarez didn’t listen though. Fenway Sports Group told Liverpool FC to stop showing the club up because they finally realised what damage Dalglish and Suarez were doing to the club. He ignored that, unsurprisingly.

C. Like I said above, typical Liverpool. Always the victim, it’s never your fault.

D. Awh, poor Suarez. Bless his cotton socks.

E. Excuse me, what?! United fans never offered Suarez respect. To play as the victim after racially abusing someone is beyond pathetic. (Video of United fans showing Suarez “respect” below.)

It will be interesting to see what Brendan Rodgers makes of this. Suarez no longer has Dalglish to go to whenever he feels the need to “cry” over shocking excuses that don’t work.

    Honestly….. what the hell did he think he’d accomplish by stating what he has done?

    Him and Terry stands for most of the shit I hate about modern football. Piss ants incapable of change. Their comments and general behavior smacks of smug arrogance, and it tends to get worse when their form on the pitch is pointing downwards. Let the feet and the ball speak, and shut up. Or learn a bit of Evra how to handle public speaking. If Evra behaved like those two varmints I bet fans would want him away from Old Trafford two years ago (although I personally still like him as a defender).

    Good use of the English language in this article (…In a sarcastic tone), although, I suppose that is to be expected given that the average intellect of a United fan is comparable to that of a Jelly Bean. No matter what your clubs achieves, it always reverts back to what’s going on across the East Lancs, because you have always been in the shadow of LFC and without them, you would have nothing to compare or gauge your success against.

      My my. That 19th title is obviously really sticking in your throaths. But then personal criticism seems to be the way of Liverpool these days.

        Once again reiterating my point about the average intelligence levels of Manchester United fans, you can’t even spell throats, and you can’t blame your finger slipping because there is a G and a Y in-between the letters. Go read a book, or better yet, a dictionary.
