Coming home from work last night I made the mistake of listening to talkSPORT, and specifically Adrian Durham.
The presenter is always outspoken, deliberately so to get a reaction, but he really angered me yesterday with his pathetic and bitter comments about Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
For those of you who don’t know, Suarez has had keyhole surgery on his knee and doubtful for the World Cup in Brazil.
While striker is hopeful of playing in the tournament the Uruguayan’s injury is a welcome boost for England as the player terrorised Premier League defences last season and scored a stunning 31 goals despite missing the start of the campaign through suspension.
Nobody really likes to see players sustain injuries and football supporters want to see the world’s best play at the World Cup, and Suarez is one of the best.
Yet Durham doesn’t seem to understand this.
I was amazed and by his comments when he claimed Suarez deserved to miss the tournament because of the ‘karma’ from four years ago in the last World Cup when he denied Ghana scoring in the quarter-finals.
All Suarez did, which most players would, was save the ball on the goal-line to prevent a goal.
What Durham forgets is that he was punished because he was suspended for the semi-final.
I find it amazing how people still bring the incident up from four years ago, and Durham is out of order if he wants Suarez to miss the World Cup through injury because the tournament will poorer without him.
Durham talks about Suarez’s karma coming back to haunt him – the radio presenter better watch his karma doesn’t do the same with him as his dull and tiresome vendetta against Suarez is getting boring.
