Suarez: Ruthless not toothless ahead of Ghana rematch

LUIS SUAREZ has remained ruthless over the famous incident at the 2010 World Cup which denied Ghana a place in the semi finals.

The Uruguayan was sent off in extra time for a deliberate handball on the goal line and Ghanaians have since referred to Suarez as ‘the devil’.

Former Liverpool striker Suarez, now appearing in his fourth World Cup, is set to renew rivalries with the African nation in Uruguay’s final group game tomorrow.

A Ghanian reporter wasn’t shy in telling Suarez exactly how he felt in the pre-match press conference, informing the striker of how he is distastefully viewed across the African continent.

Asked for his response on the incident, Suarez told reporters in Qatar: “I don’t need to apologise. 

“I’d apologise if I injured a player but in this situation, I handled the ball. 

“I take a red card and the Ghana player missed the penalty. 

“It’s not my fault. I didn’t miss the penalty. It’s not my responsibility.”

Ghana will be looking to take revenge on Suarez and Uruguay with a place in the knockout stages up for grabs.

A point will be enough for Ghana to progress should South Korea fail to beat Portugal, while Uruguay must beat Ghana to have any hope of reaching the round of 16 in Qatar.
