Luis Suarez has opened up about his shame of behaviour his on the pitch in the past, and asked for forgiveness.
The Liverpool striker has had his fair share of controversial incidents during his playing career for Ajax, the Reds and his national team, Uruguay.
Suarez was handed a 10-match ban from the Football Association for the bite, of which he has served four games so far.
“I obviously had some attitudes which I regret now and I have asked for forgiveness,” the 26-year-old is quoted by Sky Sports as saying.
“As a professional player, I would be happy if they saw me for what I do on the pitch, not for my attitudes. But I understand I am paying for my past actions.”
Whilst Suarez’s future at Liverpool remains uncertain, with speculation mounting over a move to Real Madrid this summer, the forward is now focussing his attentions on the Confederations Cup.
Uruguay go to Brazil for the tournament to be played over the next two weeks and is seen as a dress-rehearsal for next year’s World Cup in the South American country.
“The Confederations Cup is the only international tournament Uruguay have never won and it would be very good to win it here in Brazil,” he added.
“The Brazilian league is known worldwide and they have great teams. I have team-mates playing here.
“Brazil’s big stars are returning because football here is very attractive. I think it resembles a lot of European football.”
