It’s all over but the shouting: as we reported earlier this week, the Bite That Rocked the World Cup, aka Luis Suarez loses his mind, now has 888poker ties that are officially cutting the Uruguayan striker. Following a four-month playing ban by FIFA that effectively finishes their World Cup play, Suarez must now face the sobering reality he bit down more than he could chew this time, career-wise.
It was just last month that 888 signed the, um, colorful character that is Suarez to its ambassador program, and even then, it appeared to be a shaky bet on the part of the online poker giant; all things considered, this ended up beingn’t exactly the first, or second, or third (you have the idea) time that Suarez sank his teeth into a tremendously bad concept.
‘888poker signed Luis Suárez adhering to a fantastic season for which his achievements were widely recognised,’ said the company in a formally issued declaration. ‘Regrettably, following his actions during Uruguay’s World Cup match against Italy on Tuesday, 888poker has decided to end Luis Suárez to its relationship with instant effect.’
