South American defender Hurtado tries to take a chunk out of opponents cheek…
Another shocking incident of a footballer biting an opponent has surfaced.
Edwin Hurtado, a 30-year-old defender for Ecuadorian side Deportivo Quevedo, bit SC Barcelona’s Andrés Franzoia after a minor disagreement in this weekend’s league match.
The bite is even more unsavoury than the high-profile Luis Suarez attack on Branislav Ivanovic in the Premier League last term.
Unlike Ivanovic, Franoia threw himself on the floor which sparked a melee between the two sides. Hurtado was only booked for the incident!
