I was very depressed, says Suarez

Controversial striker Luis Suarez said he was “very depressed” after the World Cup biting incident that led to the Uruguay international being initially banned from all soccer activities for four months.

Suarez can now train with new club Barcelona and play friendlies, following an appeal hearing last week, before making his competitive return at the end of October.

“I prefer not to look backwards,” the former Liverpool forward said as he was presented to the media at the Nou Camp on Tuesday.

“I didn't want to do anything and I was very depressed,” added Suarez referring to his state of mind following the biting incident involving Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup in Brazil.

“I decided that all I could do was accept reality and say sorry. I have apologised to people in Uruguay for what happened and I am now looking ahead.”
