Ivanovic forgives Liverpool biter

forgiveness on Sports

http://www.london24.com - Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic says he does not hold a grudge with Luis Suarez after the Liverpool hitman bit him on his arm.



The unsavoury incident marred a pulsating clash in which the Uruguayan denied the Blues a vital three points in the race for the Premier League top four with a last-gasp injury time leveller.



Suarez has since been handed a 10-match suspension by the Football Association and apologised to Ivanovic for his assault, something which the Serbian defender was surprised at.



“When it happened I was really surprised and, of course, in shock,” the 29-year-old told Vecernje Novosti, a newspaper in his homeland.



“But, when the match it ended, it all cooled down. I almost forgot about everything.



“The next day we talked on the phone and I accepted his apology. I didn’t attack him for what he had done, but I also didn’t defend him.



“But I forgive him. For me that can happen. But I really don’t care too much.”
