It appears unhappy Liverpool striker Luis Suarez isn’t the only one with flesh-eating tendencies in the world of soccer judging by this clip from a match in Ecuador on Sunday.
Suarez received a ten-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic last season, but it seems the trend is worryingly on the increase.
Deportivo Quevedo defender Edwin Hurtado had a True Blood moment midway through the second half when he went for SC Barcelona’s Andrés Franzoia with his teeth for which he received only a yellow card.
That attack was sparked by an incident earlier in the penalty area in which a Deportivo player seemed to be flattened by Franzoia which Hurtado clearly didn’t like. Hurt by name, hurt by nature! His fangs seem to make contact with the nose of his opponent, who goes down theatrically but probably with good reason.
