Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has revealed that he regrets being involved in a number of controversial incidents, which he feels will set the wrong example for his children.

The recently crowned FWA Player of the Year and PFA Players' Player of the Year thinks that he should look to set an example for his kids, in order to be a good man and good father.

And that is why when he looks back at incidents which courted controversy, including bites on Otman Bakkal while at Ajax and Brainslav Ivanovic while at Liverpool, he feels pain.

The talismanic striker was banned for ten games last year for biting Cheslea right-back Ivanovic.


"For the kids, I want to be a good man, a good father, of whom they are proud", Suarez told Helden Magazine.

"I feel so ashamed about the mistakes I've made, biting an opponent twice.

"Later, when you realise that your children will see those pictures, it causes you even more pain."

Speaking about his current state of mind, the Uruguayan does not believe he is set to commit such offences in the future 

"I am now calmer, I now think more about what I do.

"I take it as a duty."

The 27-year-old has scored 31 goals in 32 league matches for the Reds this season and has provided his team-mates with 12 more assists, as Liverpool have challenged for the Premier League title.
