The most famous teeth in soccer will soon be feasting on some Mediterranean food. The disturbed Uruguayan forward, Luis Suarez may move to beautiful Barcelona from the Beatles’ hometown of Liverpool. Whatever his strange propensity for chomping human flesh (he’s a serial biter), his propensity for finding the back of the net overwhelms it in the eyes of many fans and team owners alike. Even Giorgio Chiellini, the shoulder of whom was Suarez’s World Cup snack, is forgiving. “It’s all forgotten,” he tweeted. “I hope FIFA will reduce your fine.”
Suarez won the Premier League Player of the Season award this year, scoring 31 goals in 33 games. Suarez will still have to sit out his suspension (four months), though Uruguay is appealing the sentence. After a disappointing campaign last year, Barca will be hungry to see what Luis Suarez can do. And Suarez should be hungry to change the optics on his oddball persona–less incisor, more victor.
