Uruguay forward Luis Suarez has said he does not owe apology to Ghana for his infamous 2010 handball in the quarter finals clash.
According to the former Liverpool and Barcelona striker, he sees no reason why he should apologies to Ghana because he has no contribution to the team’s lost.
His remarks come on the back of Uruguay’s last group match against Ghana on Friday at the Al Janoub Stadium (Al Wakrah) which is schedule to kick off at 15:00GMT.
Suarez in the said game denied the Black Stars a semi-finals qualification in the tournament after he handles a ball off the goal line.
Fast forward, Ghana was awarded a late penalty but only to be missed by Asamoah Gyan when he struck the ball into the crossbar. Ghana eventually lost to Uruguay in the post-match penalty shoot-out after extra time.
Speaking on the infamous game after 12 years ahead of the 2022 group encounter, Luis Suarez believes he owes Ghanaians no forgiveness.
“I don’t need to apologise. I’d apologize if I injured a player but, in this situation, I handled the ball, I took a red card, and the Ghana player missed the penalty,” he said with no remorse.
Buttressing his point, he added that he was not the one who took the penalty for Ghana therefore he should not be blame for that.
“I didn’t miss the penalty, it’s not my responsibility,” the Uruguay attacker stated categorically.
Meanwhile, a member of Ghana’s losing side in that match, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has urged the Black Stars players not to think about avenging the 2010 painful defeat to Uruguay.
Ahead of the all-important game, Ghana needs a draw or a win to qualify from the group stage having accumulated 3 points in two of its matches played.
On the other hand, Uruguay who are on one point after two matches needs nothing but a win against Ghana to book its ticket to the knockout stage.
