Match report: Chelsea 1 Liverpool 0 (2-1 on agg) It was well worth the wait! The Blues needed extra time to see off Liverpool in this semi-final but we are on the way back to Wembley. Our away goal in the 1-1 at Anfield meant we were ahead in the tie once the normal-time 90 minutes produced no goals at Stamford Bridge, but Branislav Ivanovic ’s headed goal was welcome extra insurance against defeat and one good Liverpool chance apart, we saw out the rest of the game with few alarms. There were contrasting halves in normal time – the first one tight with few opportunities, the biggest talking point a penalty not awarded to Diego Costa. The second was full of counter- attacks with Eden Hazard and Diego Costa going close. We take on the winners of the Sheffield United v Tottenham tie which will be completed tomorrow night (Wednesday) when we play the Capital One Cup final on 1 March.

Branislav Ivanovic's extra-time goal was enough to secure Chelsea's place in the Capital One Cup final as they beat Liverpool 1-0 on the night and 2-1 on aggregate.
Brendan Rodgers insisted his Liverpool side gave everything in their unsuccessful pursuit to overcome Chelsea in the Capital One Cup semi-finals. The Reds were thwarted at Stamford Bridge in their attempts to reach Wembley on Tuesday night, with the home side securing a victory in extra time. Long after the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Alberto Moreno had been denied an opener in London, Branislav Ivanovic nodded home on 94 minutes. Rodgers' team were unable to produce a response in the moments that remained, and therefore it was Chelsea who progressed 2-1 on aggregate. But the Northern Irishman believed his players had edged the Barclays Premier League leaders in performance level across two closely-fought legs. "I think we were the better side over the two games, but ultimately you've got to get the place in the final," assessed the manager after the final whistle. "I think the goalkeeper for them has won them the tie really. Performance-wise, we were outstanding. Again tonight, some of our play was ve ...

Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool: five talking points from a fiery Stamford Bridge Martin Skrtel’s reckless challenge escapes referee’s attention; José Mourinho adds to the fireworks; Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho sparkles despite the mayhem 1) Costa faces trouble over Can challenge Diego Costa has to hope that Michael Oliver had a view of the flashpoint in the 12th minute and chose to take no action. But it felt like wishful thinking. Had Oliver seen what Costa did when he brought his studs down on Emre Can’s ankle, as the Liverpool player lay prone, the referee would surely have reached for a card and it might well have been red. The Football Association could consider retrospective punishment against Costa. It was not an isolated incident. Early in the second half, Costa came down again with his studs, this time on to Martin Skrtel’s foot. It was hard to tell whether it was accidental. A suspension for Costa would be a bitter pill for Chelsea. They face Manchester City on Saturday. 2) Referee endures a ...

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was left seething after his team were denied what he described as a “Big Ben” penalty during the 1-1 Premier League draw at Southampton on Sunday. Cesc Fabregas was shown a yellow card after tumbling in a challenge with Southampton defender Matt Targett, infuriating Morinho whose players have been accused of diving in several recent incidents. “I think it is a scandal because it is not a small penalty – it is a penalty like Big Ben,” Mourinho told the BBC. “In this country – and I am happy with that, more than happy with that – we will just say that it was a big mistake with a big influence in the result. “I am happy that it is this way, with respect for the referee. He made a big mistake like I make, like the players make sometimes.” Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic, Diego Costa and Gary Cahill have all been involved in controversy over diving in r ...
Jose fuming after Cesc yellow Jose Mourinho claims there is a "clear campaign" against Chelsea after Cesc Fabregas was booked in the 1-1 draw with Southampton. Sadio Mane and Eden Hazard scored in an entertaining, hard-fought 1-1 draw at St Mary's on Sunday, but afterwards the Blues manager's only focus was only on what he believes is a growing movement against his side. Chelsea have found themselves at the heart of the simulation debate in recent weeks, with Diego Costa and Willian booked for supposedly taking a tumble in the win against Hull - after which Steve Bruce described a Gary Cahill dive as "like something out of Swan Lake". The west Londoners came under scrutiny again on Boxing Day when Branislav Ivanovic appeared to take a tumble against West Ham - the kind of incident Mourinho believes is being wrongly hammed-up and denied his side three points at St Mary's. Fabregas looked to have won a penalty early in the second half after being caught by Saints teenager Matt Targett, yet referee Anthony T ...

Branislav Ivanovic - 7 There was precious little for him to do at his own end so he tried his luck down the other, with a ferocious volley that would have been discussed for decades to come had it not flown narrowly over the bar. Gary Cahill - 7 Suffered from a momentary twitching of the bum as Choupo-Moting's drive bounced off him and goalwards, but dealt with everything else with ease. John Terry - 8 The skipper set the ball rolling with an early headed goal and was as solid as you'd expect after returning to his natural habitat at the back. Cesar Azpilicueta - 7 Largely untroubled by Schalke's limited attacking threat while those in front of him took care of the final third. Cesc Fabregas - 9 An absolute masterclass. He was heavily involved in four of the Blues' five goals and weighed in with two assists of his own. T ...

Chelsea have little time to recover from their excursions in the Champions League last night as they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime. Here is the line-up we think Jose Mourinho will go with: Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois should come straight back in after Petr Cech was given a rare run-out against Maribor last night. Defence: Cesar Azpilicueta is likely to replace Filipe Luis at left-back after serving his three-match domestic ban. Gary Cahill will also be recalled in place of Kurt Zouma after being given a breather on Wednesday night. John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic will retain their places at the back. Midfield: Mourinho is unlikely to make any changes in midfield as Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic are excelling in the middle of the park. John Obi Mikel is struggling with a knee injury which limits his options for rotation in any case. Attack: Diego Costa came on at half- time last night but he’s expected to be restored to the starting eleven on Saturday with Didier Drogb ...
Gary Neville has expressed his belief that Chelsea's Cesar Azpilicueta is the best defender in the Premier League. The Blues have the second best defensive record in the league this season as they have conceded 10 goals in their 10 matches, and Neville feels that the Spaniard's consistency separates him from his teammates at Stamford Bridge. "I'd say, for consistency of performances, it would be one of the Chelsea lads and I'd probably say Azpilicueta," Neville told Sky Sports News . "For technical defending, not making a mistake, not being in the wrong position, not getting caught out... I don't see him making a mistake. And I have to say the Chelsea defenders aren't far behind him; Gary Cahill, John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic . "But Azpilicueta, when I watch him, he's as near to perfect as possible when it comes to defending; he's immaculate." The 25-year-old joined Chelsea in 2012 from Marseille.
LONDON EVENING STANDARD Barcelona's former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been omitted from FIFA's 23-man list of contenders for the Ballon d'Or award.

Didier Drogba, 36, playing from the start because Diego Costa was unfit, headed the visitors in front in the 53rd minute from a corner conceded when David De Gea was forced into a fine save from Eden Hazard. Chelsea seemed likely to hold out but just before the final whistle Branislav Ivanovic was sent off for a second yellow card and from the free kick Thibaut Courtois saved from Marouane Fellaini but could not keep out Van Persie’s fierce follow-up. [ 20 more words. ]
Robin Van Persie’s injury-time equaliser rescued a point for Manchester United after Chelsea had been reduced to 10 men late on in a gripping encounter at Old Trafford. The captain smashed the ball home in the 94th minute, just after Branislav Ivanovic had given away a free kick and been sent off for his second bookable offence. Angel Di Maria’s effort allowed Marouane Fellaini a shot, which Thibaut Courtois saved only for Van Persie to drill emphatically home. Van Persie had seen three earlier chances saved by Chelsea’s goalkeeper, and his heroics snatched a deserved point following Didier Drogba’s headed effort early in the second half. Stirred by a raucous atmosphere, both sides had played at a high tempo for the opening minutes with a breakaway from Di Maria upping the ante after an early pair of Chelsea corners. The mercurial Argentine’s shooting was not as good as his on-the-ball skills, with two attempts flying high and wide before 10 minutes had gone by. The visitors asserted themselves ...
This is Van Gaal’s biggest achievement since arriving at Old Trafford. A year ago Chelsea would have banked their three points in relative comfort but United kept coming. Di Maria forced a clumsy challenge from the already-booked Branislav Ivanovic before delivering a perfect free kick onto the head of Fellaini and Van Persie smashed in the rebound with seconds left. It was a finale whose drama would have fit perfectly into the Ferguson era. After the match Mourinho, quietly seething, insisted he was satisfied. “My team played a fantastic game,” he told Sky Sports . “We had good control of the game. We could’ve scored a couple more goals but I’m very happy with my players.” So he should be. Chelsea return to London with a bitter taste but their unbeaten run still intact and can console themselves with the knowledge that their business in Manchester is done for the season. Their road to the title now rests on negotiating the less formidable obstacles that derailed them last term. But Van Gaal ...
Here’s the Premier League team of the week based on the latest action. GK – David De Gea (Manchester United) Superb in the game against Everton, pulling off one of the best saves from a penalty you’re likely to see this season. RB – Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea) Was rarely troubled against Arsenal and got stuck in early, announcing his physical presence. CB – Eliaquim Mangala (Manchester City) Manuel Pellegrini should be extremely encouraged by the way Mangala has reacted after a difficult spell over the last couple of weeks. He was solid against a quick Aston Villa attack. CB – Michael Dawson (Hull City) Dawson has slotted into the heart of the Hull back four with ease. His experience is key and he made the right decisions in the win against Crystal Palace. article continues below LB – Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea) His consistent performances continue to keep Filipe Luis out of the team. He looks effective and useful on either side of the defence at the moment. / RM – Jordan ...
Thibaut Courtois (off 24 mins) - 6 Came off through injury after 24 minutes, but was brave in the challenge that led to him being substituted. Branislav Ivanovic - 8.5 Made seven tackles, four interceptions and seven clearances - more than any other Chelsea player. John Terry - 6.5 Was hardly troubled all day, but was solid when called upon. Made the least amount of touches for an outfield player, such was Arsenal’s lack of attacking prowess. Gary Cahill - 6.5 Made the second least touches against Arsenal, but made a couple of tackles and clearances to help keep a clean sheet. Cesar Azpilicueta - 7 Made five tackles and as many important clearances. A typically solid performance from the Spaniard. Substitute: Petr Cech (on 24 mins) - 6 Made just 23 touches in around 70 minutes of football. Made one good save, but was barely tested all afternoon. Nemanja Matic - 7 Without being forced to break a sweat, Matic nullified any Arsenal threat perfectly. He kept Arsenal’s forwards quiet and let nothing past h ...
Chelsea show no remorse in fiesty 2-0 win over Arsenal Jonathan Wilson It was better from Arsenal Sunday -- but it was still not good enough. There was at least fight in their 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday, a sense of coherence and a game plan. This was a much-improved performance on last season's four capitulations away from home against the other sides that finished in the top five. And yet, this was still a game ultimately decided by some all too familiar Arsenal failings -- and by the remorselessness of a Chelsea that now stands five points clear at the top of the table. The key to beating Arsenal, as Sir Alex Ferguson outlined in his latest autobiography, is to push high up the pitch and look for interceptions. That was how Chelsea crushed them last season, pressuring Arsenal into giving the ball away and scoring five of its goals in a 6-0 drubbing off rapid transitions. This time, though, there was aggression and intensity from Arsenal from the off, Alexis Sanchez yapping around Branislav Ivanovic ...

Chelsea overpowered Everton 6-3 in a remarkable game on Saturday to preserve their 100 percent record in the Premier League, after Manchester City were stunned by Stoke City. Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea led 2-0, 3-1, and 4-2, but Everton kept coming back at them and it was not until Diego Costa made it 6-3 with his second goal in the last minute that the home side finally admitted defeat at an enraptured Goodison Park. Chelsea were 2-0 up inside three minutes, with Diego Costa tucking away a pass from Cesc Fabregas after only 36 seconds before Ramires teed up Branislav Ivanovic to drill a low shot past Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard. But Kevin Mirallas reduced the arrears with a fine header on the stroke of half-time and when Everton right-back Seamus Coleman slid an Eden Hazard cross into his own goal in the 67th minute, it heralded a flurry of five goals in 10 minutes. Two minutes later Steven Naismith hit back for the hosts to make it 3-2 and although Nemanja Matic then restored the visitors’ two-goal c ...

Oscar: A good day in the end Reflecting on Saturday’s hard-fought victory against Leicester, Oscar said an increase in the intensity of our performance was the key to a much- improved showing after the break. For long periods of the first half Leicester were not only resolute in defence but also posed plenty of problems going forward, something Oscar acknowledged as he gave his assessment of our second victory this season. ‘In the first half we wanted to play good football but Leicester played really well,’ he said. ‘It was not easy for the team. We needed more intensity and to keep the ball better. ‘Jose Mourinho said at half-time we needed more as a team and every player needed to play better. In the second half we managed to do that. The team’s performance was good. We won 2-0 so in the end it was a good day for Chelsea. Everybody is happy.’ Oscar had an important part to play in the goal which broke the deadlock shortly after the hour. The Brazilian cleverly released the roaming Branisla ...

Chelsea grind out tough win 2014-08-23 17:50 London - Diego Costa scored for the second match in succession as Chelsea made it two Premier League wins from two matches this season with a 2-0 victory at home to newly- promoted Leicester City on Saturday. As it happened: Chelsea v Leicester WRAP: English Premiership After a goalless first half, Chelsea twice almost took the lead at the start of the second period. Oscar hit the far post with a curling shot from the right before Branislav Ivanovic's header was well saved by Kaspar Schmeichel, son of former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter. Leicester, who held Everton to a 2-2 draw last week, then had a chance of their own when David Nugent burst clear only for the Foxes striker to be denied by Thibault Courtois, again preferred by Jose Mourinho to Petr Cech, when one-on-one with the keeper. But 32 million ($55 million, 40 million euros) Spain striker Costa, who scored in last week's 3-1 win at Burnley, marked his home debut by turning in Ivanovic's cross fr ...
MATCH REPORT: CHELSEA 2 LEICESTER City 0 The Blues had to be patient before making it 2 wins out of 2 but 2nd-half goals from Diego Costa&Eden Hazard sent the 1st Stamford Bridge crowd of the season home happy. The 1st half was 1 of few chances with the 2 defences on top,but from the very start of the 2nd period Chelsea were in the ascendant with Kasper Schmeichel in the Foxes goal a busy man. Thibaut Courtois also saved well before the breakthrough came just past the hour,Diego Costa scoring his 2nd in 2games with another close-range finish following good work from Oscar&Branislav Ivanovic. Eden Hazard doubled the lead with an individual goal with 13mins remaining&the points never looked in doubt after that as a 2nd promoted side were dispatched in this opening week. TEAM NEWS Unsurprisingly given the at-times-silky football played at Burnley,Jose Mourinho fielded the same 11 that started on Monday night so there were home debuts for Thibaut Courtois,Cesc Fabregas&Diego Costa. Ramires was back on the ben ...
Final whistle verdict: Calm and composed NEWS 1 day It was the manner in which his side responded to going behind that most pleased Jose Mourinho tonight. A wonderful volley from Burnley’s Scott Arfield gave our hosts an early advantage but within minutes we were level courtesy of Diego Costa’s first for the club. Our second goal, assisted by Cesc Fabregas and scored by Andre Schurrle, was a work of art and an early contender for goal of the season. The third, volleyed in by Branislav Ivanovic, was a more routine affair but well taken nonetheless. Those three goals arrived in the space of 17 first-half minutes and while we did not add to our tally after the break it was still as good an opening-day performance as you could wish to see, particularly in light of the fact so many of our players’ return to training has been staggered because of the World Cup. That was just one aspect of tonight’s victory that pleased the manager, who also spoke on his team’s response to going a goal down against top ...
Chelsea striker Diego Costa bore the brunt of some "unfair decisions" in his Premier League bow, according to manager Jose Mourinho.Costa equalised for the London club in their 3-1 win at Burnley on Monday, the Spaniard sweeping in to finish after Branislav Ivanovic's dangerous cross came back off the post. Mourinho said Costa - who was cautioned in the 31st minute at Turf Moor for simulation - was frustrated despite his scoring start, and will take time to adjust to the disciplinary demands of the English top flight. "Costa last season had a fantastic season and I think in the Spanish League he got five or six yellow cards during all season," Mourinho said post-match. "We all explained to him; what we want in the Premier League, what we want at Chelsea, what people like in the Premier League and what people don't like. "The kid presents himself with a fantastic attitude, a competitive attitude, very clean and polite. "He has a clear penalty - then no penalty and a yellow card. The kid was obviously frust ...
Chelsea fell behind early to Premier League newcomers Burnley at Turf Moor on Monday but Jose Mourinho’s men rallied impressively to seal a 3-1 win in their opening game of the season. Scott Arfield stunned the Blues early on as the Scotman controlled and volleyed home to put Burnley in front. However within 10 minutes Chelsea were ahead as Diego Costa finished clinically on his debut and Andre Schurrle scored a beautiful team goal after Cesc Fabregas‘ sumptuous through ball. [Mourinho: "Courtois my number one"] Chelsea went 3-1 up before the break, as Branislav Ivanovic tapped home from close range. Burnley tried to get back in to the game but Chelsea kept the ball expertly and bagged all three points on a rainy evening up in Lancashire. Mourinho has now won five out of five on the opening day as Chelsea boss.
"Demba Ba takes a jibe at Mourinho" Demba Ba has hit out at Jose Mourinho, claiming that the Chelsea boss is more concerned with reputation than statistics. The Senegal striker joined Besiktas in the summer after struggling to get regular playing time at Stamford Bridge, with the signing of Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid further blocking his path to the starting XI. Ba still scored a number of crucial goals during his time with the west London club and has suggested that he was not given a chance to prove himself to Mourinho, arguing that he was too often left playing second fiddle to the likes of Fernando Torres. He told theDaily Mail: "Sometimes when you are at a club with a lot of big stars, the name counts for more than the statistics. Unfortunately, it was like that in my case. "But I am happy I moved from Newcastle to Chelsea and achieved what I did. I have lots of friends there. "Eden Hazard is one of my best friends, I am close to Branislav Ivanovic, too. All my wishes are for them to win the le ...
The goals were from Diego Costa, Andre Schurrle and Branislav Ivanovic. Cesc Fabregas played a crucial part in all three.
BURNLEY 1-3 CHELSEA Burnley 1-1 CHELSEA 17min: But what a response from the Blues! Mind you, Burnley may as well have gift-wrapped this equaliser as a low cross from the right trickles along the six-yard box before bouncing off the post and falling for Diego Costa to smash home. Burnley 1-2 CHELSEA 21min: this is brilliant from the Blues! Eden Hazard's tricky run sees him advance into the box before playing the ball out wide. A cross then finds Cecs Fabregas on the edge of the box, whose first touch is a through pass deep into the box for Andre Schurrle to run on to and convert past Heaton. Brilliant team goal. Burnley 1-3 CHELSEA 34min: Chelsea are ripping them apart. It's not just open play too as now set-piece are a concern as Branislav Ivanovic turns home Cesc Fabregas's corner from a central position.
José Mourinho - Barcelona misused Cesc Fábregas but Chelsea won’t José Mourinho claimed Cesc Fábregas was misused by Barcelona and hailed his impressive Chelsea debut as confirmation of why the former Arsenal captain was his first choice midfield target this summer. The £30m signing shone on his first Premier League start for Chelsea as Burnley were beaten 3-1 at Turf Moor with goals from his fellow debutant Diego Costa, Andre Schürrle and Branislav Ivanovic. Mourinho also gave a first Premier League start to the goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois at the expense of Petr Cech but denied the selection would lead to the 32-year-old’s departure from Stamford Bridge. Burnley had taken an early lead through Scott Arfield but, with Fábregas involved in all three Chelsea goals, including an exquisite pass for Schürrle’s second, Mourinho insisted the midfielder would give his team a new dimension this season. “The team played very well but I agree with Cesc being man of the match because he and [Nemanja] ...
Burnley 1-3 Chelsea: Diego Costa, Andre Schurrle and Branislav Ivanovic goals give Jose Mourinho's side victory at Turf Moor Some will cite the financial gulf between the teams, others the technical divide, but the bottom line problem for Burnley on Monday night was that they had not seen anything like this. There were moments, the second goal in particular, when Chelsea took their football to a new level of excellence under Jose Mourinho, second time around. And dealing with that must be very unnerving for a group of players fresh to the Premier League. Only Michael Duff has survived at Turf Moor from the last time Burnley were part of the elite. He is 36. Of course, the increased challenge of the Premier League is only to be expected. But nothing could prepare Sean Dyche’s team for the moment when the full potential of players like Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle and Cesc Fabregas was unleashed. They won’t have been confronted by the terrifying reality of a Champions League elite team before. They won ...
Possible line up for the first game of season: Courtios, ivanovich, John Terry, cahill, luis, matic, fabregas, Eden Hazard, Oscar dos Santos, willian, costa Chelsea's likely lineup for Burnley clash.Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has a big decision to make in goal as his side kick off their Premier League season away to newly-promoted Burnley. With youngster Thibaut Courtois playing 90 minutes in a recently friendly win over Real Sociedad, it could be a signal that the Belgian international is about to displace Petr Cech as the club's number one, and he could get the nod here as the new season gets underway. Elsewhere, new signings are likely to be on display for Chelsea, who look incredibly strong and are many people's favourites for the title this year. Goalkeeper and defence: In goal, Thibaut Courtois could make his long-awaited Chelsea debut, with a back four of Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry, Gary Cahill and new signing Filipe Luis ahead of him. Luis joins Courtois in moving to Stamford Bridge from At ...
Luis Suarez will learn the result of his appeal against a four-month ban for biting on Thursday, the Court of Arbitration for Sport has announced. The Uruguay striker, 27, was punished by Fifa for biting Giorgio Chiellini during his country's 1-0 group-stage victory over Italy at the World Cup. The former Liverpool star was banned from "all football-related activity". Suarez, who joined Barcelona for £75m in the summer,argued the terms of the ban were excessive. His legal team were expected to argue that he should be allowed to train with his new side during his suspension. Luis Suarez controversies June 2014 - Banned for four months from any football-related activity, plus nine international matches, for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini April 2013 - Apologises for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic and receives a 10-game ban Dec 2011 - Given eight-match suspension and fined £40,000 for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra Nov 2010 - Given seven-match ban for biting PSV E ...
FOOTBALL Chelsea ready £30m bid for Man Utd target Mehdi Benatia CHELSEA are ready to make a £30million bid for Roma defender Mehdi Benatia. With less than a week to go before Chelsea’s opening Premier League game, away to Burnley on Monday night, Jose Mourinho wants to strengthen his defence with a move for the Moroccan centre-back. Benatia, 27, is also being chased by Manchester United but Chelsea are in the driving seat, with inquiries already having been made. They have switched their attention to Benatia because Real Madrid have indicated so far that French defender Raphael Varane is not for sale and with another target, Atletico Madrid star Joao Miranda, opting to stay in Spain. Mourinho has still not replaced Brazilian David Luiz, sold to Paris Saint Germain this summer for £50m and he believes that, even though he has Branislav Ivanovic and French youngster Kurt Zouma who could both fill in at centre-back if John Terry or Gary Cahill are injured, he still needs extra cover. If they push throu ...

Chelsea starts pre-season training Jose Mourinho oversaw the first training session of pre-season at Cobham earlier today (Wednesday) as those players not involved in the World Cup returned from their summer breaks. Having arrived at the training ground around lunchtime, the group headed out on to the pitch later in the afternoon under the watchful eye of the Portuguese and his coaching staff. Those players regularly involved with the first team squad, such as John Terry , Mark Schwarzer , Branislav Ivanovic , Nemanja Matic, Mohamed Salah and Demba Ba all trained, along with the likes of Marco van Ginkel , Nathan Ake and Oriol Romeu, who spent last season on loan at Valencia. Petr Cech was back in training following the shoulder injury he sustained towards the end of last season. There were also a couple of new additions in the form of Mario Pasalic, the 19-year-old midfielder who completed his move to Stamford Bridge from Hajduk Split earlier in the day, and Kurt Zouma, who spent the second half of last ...

DAILY MAIL: Liverpool are to blame for feeding Luis Suarez's ego after Branislav Ivanovic bite
Suarez after biting Ivanovic 'I hope that all the people who I offended will grant me forgiveness &I again repeat my apology to Branislav'
Worth noting that Luis Suarez also offered an apology to Branislav Ivanovic in 2013 after biting the Chelsea defender. Still re-offended.
Brazil 2014: Suarez apologised to Giorgio Chiellini July 1, 2014 Uruguay and Liverpool FC striker Luis Suarez has apologised to Italian Giorgio Chiellini for the bite which earned him a nine-match and four-month ban from football. The 27-year-old forward was suspended from all football activities for biting Chiellini during the Italy/Uruguay match on Tuesday at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. “The truth is that my colleague Giorgio Chiellini suffered the physical result of a bite in the collision he suffered with me,’’ said Suarez in a statement. Suarez has previously said he lost his balance and did not bite Chiellini. It is his third career ban for biting after incidents with Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic while at Liverpool in April 2013, and PSV’s Otman Bakkal while at Ajax in 2010. “I deeply regret what occurred,’’ added Suarez. “I apologise to Giorgio Chiellini and the entire football family. I vow to the public that there will never again be another incident like this.’’ Chi ...
Is Suarez the dirtiest footballer in history? Have there been dirtier players than Suarez? Luis Suarez seems to be on a mission to win the accolade of dirtiest footballer in history after his bite on Giorgio Chilelini. Remember that was not his first bite of the cheryy(weird) but his third after attacks on Ottman Bakkal whilst at Ajax and Branislav Ivanovic. We however cannot allow him to contest alone so we have provided four challengers to his claim. Lets find the dirtiest Andoni Goikoetxea was popularly referred to as the Butcher of Bilbao in his prime so that should give you a fair idea of his talents. The Athletico Bilbao defender's claim to fame was a mad challenge on then most expensive footballer in the world Diego Maradona in 1983.Maradona spent considerable time out of the game whilst Goiko continued his rampage,injuring a player here and ending a career there. Legend has it he kept the boots he used to injure Maradona at home in a glass case.Yikes. Vinnie Jones to most movie lovers is that Engl ...
