Luis Suarez Trying To Get Chile Player Sent Off For Tripping Up Pitch Invader Will Never Get Old

Luis Suarez appealing for Gonzalo Jara to be shown a card after he tripped up a pitch invader is a video that lives rent free in our heads.

In the Copa America game between Uruguay and Chile in June 2019, former West Brom and Nottingham Forest defender Jara was annoyed by a chicken-mask encroacher who had interrupted the game.

He stuck his leg out to trip him up and that helped the stewards catch him and take him off the pitch.

Suarez, however, saw an opportunity. He frantically scurried over to the referee and clearly gestured for a card to be shown to Jara.

The incident happened exactly four years after Jara stuck his fingers up Edinson Cavani's backside but much to Suarez's frustration, he avoided any punishment here.

In the same game, Suarez continued to bring serious sh*thousery to the table when he appealed for a handball against goalkeeper Gabriel arias.

The former Liverpool star slapped his hand and called for a penalty before remembering the age-old law that goalkeepers are in fact allowed to use their hands in their box.

Only Suarez would appeal for handball against the keeper in the box and try and get someone sent off for tackling a pitch invader.

He once spent five minutes trying to get booked in hilarious fashion in the past while this season the Atletico Madrid man was cautioned for trying to sneak a look at the VAR screen.
