I won’t apologize for ‘breaking Ghanaians hearts’ in 2010 – Luis Suarez

Uruguay’s Luis Suarez has boldly stated that he will not apologize for kicking Ghana out of the 2010 FIFA World Cup with his goal-line hand clearance.

“The first time, I won’t apologise about that,” the former Barcelona star said in a press conference on Thursday ahead of the re-match between Ghana and the South Americans at the 2022 World Cup.

“I take the handball – but the Ghana player [Asamoah Gyan] missed a penalty, not me. Maybe I apologise if I injure a player but, in this situation, I take a red card, the referee says penalty, it’s not my fault.”

The Black Stars were on the verge of a historic qualification to the semi-finals as the first African team to do so but Suarez punched the ball out with his hands on the goal-line.

The referee sent off Suarez and awarded Ghana a penalty which Asamoah Gyan missed before Ghana went on to lose the ensuing penalty shootout.

Ghanaians have since been seeking revenge and the two teams finally meet on Friday at Al Janoub Stadium in their final Group H game that has a lot at stake.

The game will kick off at 3 pm on Friday.
