Luis Suarez practiced clearing the ball off the goal line with his hand during Liverpool’s training session ahead of Saturday’s big game against Arsenal.
The Uruguay striker became infamous for handling a goal-bound header to deny Ghana a historic semi final place in the 2010 World Cup.
The Liverpool striker remains a hated figure amongst many Ghanaians who still harbour the pains of his foul play four years ago in South Africa.
Though he was rightfully dismissed and Ghana awarded a penalty kick at the depth in extra time, the 27-year-old was out celebrating on the sidelines after Asamoah Gyan had missed that vital kick and eventually losing the penalty shootouts.
Suarez has even been involved in a handful of handball incidents during his Liverpool days, but has largely stayed out of trouble this season.
The tendency for the Uruguayan striker relapsing while doing such training acts ahead of Saturday’s big game will however pose a major concern for especially Ghanaian Liverpool fans.
