When does this animal get banned from FIFA permanently? Third time he's done it. What kind of deranged mind does this? I don't care that he's the most exciting striker in the world -- the fact the's done this 3 times, including twice in about 18 months, is proof enough. Ban him permanently.
LFC fans -- you can't seriously support this animal, can you?
