Suarez says Evra episode was like a bad movie
Luis Suarez has again protested his innocence over his bust-up with Patrice Evra that landed him an eight-match ban in 2011.
With 26 goals to his name this campaign, Suarez is finally attracting headlines for the right reasons following a turbulent first two and a half seasons at Liverpool.
He was fined £40,000 for racially abusing Evra and last season received a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, as well as being regularly accused of diving.
Though he admits his clash with Ivanovic was a mistake, likewise his bite on PSV's Otman Bakkal when he played for Ajax, Suarez is still adamant he was falsely accused over the Evra incident.
"All the other things were like a movie that people in England believed in," Suarez reportedly said on Radio 890 in Uruguay.
"The case with Evra was all false. I was accused without proof. But that's in the past. I was sad at that moment but I'm happy today.
"Let me tell you, I've made only two mistakes in my career. My first was when I was playing for Ajax and I bit an opponent. My second was when I bit Ivanovic.
"Those two were my only two mistakes as a footballer. I said I'm sorry and that was all - end of story. I've nothing else to regret.
"I have grown up. I have thought more about things before doing them.
"Now people in England can't talk about me because I'm not doing anything wrong. They have to talk only about me as a footballer."
