GIORGIO CHIELLINI admitted he despite everything admires Luiz Suarez notwithstanding being bit by the striker at the 2014 World Cup. The previous Liverpool forward infamously took a bite out of the Italian defender in an off-the-ball occurrence.
The officials of the match skipped it however Fifa slapped Suarez with a four-month suspension from all football activity. Prior to that, the Uruguay international had been trained for attacking Otman Bakkal in 2010 and Branislav Ivanovic in 2013.
However Juventus star Chiellini admitted that he doesn’t hold resentment and also said that the pair had on the pitch the same attitude.
He wrote in his autobiography: “in all actuality, I admire his underhandedness, for if Suarez somehow happened to lose that, he would turn into an average actor. This day at the 2014 World Cup, nothing odd happened. For a great part of the game, I labeled Edinson Cavani, another troublesome person to stay aware of and we didn’t keep down on anything. I recollected without warning that I was nibbled on the head. It happened, that’s all there is to it, yet that’s his strategy with regards to battling body-to-body contact and, on the off chance that I can say along these lines, that’s mine too. Suarez and I are close and I like being faced with strikers like him. A couple of days after the game, I called him however he didn’t have to apologize to me.”
He added saying that he too is acting like a b * child on the field, and is glad for it. He accepts evil and some malice is part of the game and he would not call that cheating.
“You should be savvy in beating your rival.”
