Luis Suarez judo kicks Scott Parker (Liverpool 0-0 Spurs)
Luis Suarez made his Liverpool comeback last night following his eight-match ban during last night’s 0-0 draw with Tottenham.
You can imagine that the Uruguayan’s final instructions before coming on as a substitute probably didn’t go: “Barge over the guy with the Afro and then kick someone in the stomach.”
But that’s exactly what Suarez managed.
After an immediate – and fair – wrestle with Benoit Assou Ekotto, which left the full-back on his backside, Suarez was booked for a ridiculous assault on Scott Parker’s midriff.
Wayne Rooney was among the viewers who thought Suarez was lucky not to have another suspension looming after the incident.
He wrote on Twitter: “If ref sees that kick from suarez and books him for it it should be red.”
