The Football Association banned the Uruguayan for eight games for the incident but Suarez told Uruguayan radio station Sport890 AM that the case against him was "false".

Suarez was roundly condemned for his actions in the aftermath of the case which culminated in the Liverpool striker electing not to shake Evra’s hand when the pair met again.

However, Suarez has no regrets regarding the incident.

"Let me tell you, I've made only two mistakes in my career. My first was when I was playing for Ajax and I bit an opponent. My second was when I bit (Branislav) Ivanovic," said Suarez.

"The case with (Patrice) Evra was all false. I was accused without proof. But that's in the past. I was sad at that moment, but I'm happy today. I have grown up. I have thought more about things before doing them.

"Now people in England can't talk about me because I'm not doing anything wrong. They have to talk about me only as a footballer.

"I said I'm sorry (after the Ivanovic bite) and that was all, end of story. I've nothing else to regret. All the other things were like a movie that people in England believed in."
