LONDON - Barcelona striker Luis Suarez says he has talked to specialists about his behaviour and insists there will be no further biting incidents.
Suarez is serving a four-month ban for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup - his third biting offence, BBC News reported. "I say to fans, don't worry, because I won't do that anymore. I spoke to my psychologist and he said I had to face it and say sorry. I did - now I would rather focus on the present, which is Barcelona." The 27-year-old Uruguay striker, who said he was "really depressed" after the incident in Brazil, launched an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the ban.
Following the verdict, the former Liverpool striker is still banned from playing in competitive fixtures until late October and must also serve the remaining eight games of his nine-match international ban. Addressing a media conference on Tuesday, Suarez said of his behavioural issues, "I am speaking to professionals - the right professionals. But it is a private matter and I don't want to comment further on that."
"Everything that happens in the past, that needs to be forgotten. If I start thinking about everything I've gone through, I wouldn't be able to sleep," he added.
