Giorgio Chiellini Finally Gets Revenge On Luis Suarez By Biting Him Back...On FIFA 19
Four years after Luis Suarez infamously sank his teeth into Giorgio Chiellini's shoulder at the 2014 World Cup group stage, the Italian centre-back has finally got his revenge. Kind of.
Suarez received a nine-match international ban for biting, as well as being banned from all football activity for four months.
The pair have since buried the hatchet and even swapped shirts when they came up against one another in the Champions League quarter final last year, but the incident will go down in World Cup history, for all the wrong reasons.
Talking to Onda Cero the 30 year old revealed:
"I hurt Sofia because I lied to her. She asked me (about biting Chiellini) and I denied it. I had trouble believing it, let alone saying it. I couldn't understand it. I hurt her because she knew I wasn't like that."
The former Champions League winner also talked about his unfair punishment from FIFA adding, "You can punish someone, suspend them ... but to stop them going to a training centre, for example, to see my nephew train, that seems so unfair to me. I didn't understand it. Not at all.
"I didn't go to the FIFA gala and I will never go again. I have no problem saying I will never go to a FIFA gala."

Suarez explained earlier this year how he couldn't celebrate Uruguay's goal later on in the game because he sunk his teeth into the Juventus player moments before.
"After that - after I did it - I realised immediately," he told Pique via The Players' Tribune.
"We score our goal a few minutes after, I think it's about 10 minutes after when [Diego] Godín scores, and I don't celebrate it as much as I usually would - the way everyone else celebrated it - because I was already thinking about the aftermath.
Suarez added: "And I think in the few days after that - before they kicked me out of the World Cup - that's when I spoke with Zubi [Andoni Zubizarreta Urreta], and the president, and they told me to be calm because Barça still wanted me and, and, I have no problem saying it, I cried.
"Because, they were accepting, and me going through what I did in that moment, and with the shit I had caused, it was complicated to trust in me.
"Truth is, Barça has been so good to me, and I will always be very grateful for that."
