Suarez Suspended For 9 Games And Four Months


FIFA have just announced that Louis Suarez has been suspended and fined for biting Italian center-back Giorgio Chiellini in the final group D game on Tuesday. Uruguay won the game 1-0, after Italy had been reduced to 10 men after Claudio Marchisio has been dismissed for a dangerous tackle – and in truth Suarez should have been sent off for biting Chiellini.

Louis Suarez about to bite an unsuspecting Italian footballer

FIFA announced that they had found evidence that Louis Suarez did bite Chiellini,  and he will be suspended for 9 International games, starting with Uruguay’s next game against Columbia – and he is out of the World Cup altogether.

He will not even be allowed to accompany the Uruguay team to any of the World Cup stadiums, and he has also been fined 100K Swiss Francs, which is about £66K and $112K.

The four months suspension is for all of football, and it looks like that will miss about nine Premier League games, if he is still at Liverpool at that time, with Barcelona having said they were interested in signing the striker.

And would you believe it, the first PL game he will be available for is against Newcastle at St. James’ Park on November 1st.

We suggested last night his suspension should be for the rest of the year – and that would have been another couple of months through to January 1st.

But this is a very serious offense indeed, at the biggest sporting event in the world (by far), with millions and millions of viewers watching around the world.

And it’s now the third time he has bitten an opponent in a game – and Suarez’ disciplinary record is just terrible and he’s also a very poor role model for kids.

What do you think?

    Shocking and spineless, minimum ban should have been 1 year from all football.

    well said m8, basically we the fans are looking for excuses for Mike Ashley which is the complete opposite of what we should be doing.

    Could you imagine the outcry if we were going to spend a world record fee for a player, there would be uproar and we would be up in arms because we could have had 4 or 5 good but lesser players for that fee, think back to Alan Shearer signing for us and look at us now, different owners(worse), different team(worse) and very very different supporters where many of us are much worse, sadly I think that I am as guilty as anyone as I now look at the likes of Lasogga and Gomis and feel annoyed that we didn’t get them, lets be honest who the f— are they ?

    Seems everyone agrees it’s not enough. It probably let’s the bin dippers off the hook too.
    I just hope that when he does come back the fans let him know what they think of him.

    boards can work both ways but really its the pitches which will be the biggest help imho that is, but something has to be done but it won’t, far too many people with voices but far too few with actions to back those voices up.

    As for Luis, well every team needs a fighting spirit and you do have to have a bit of bite in your team but he does take the bite aspect to the extreme, it’s his 3rd offence, he should be banned for life, he must like taking a holiday in September as he is never available for work ?

    Looking at the ban in more detail though its quite interesting

    I don’t know how they will implement this but he is banned from training with the club, from stadium and training ground, he cannot train anywhere else for 4 months, no football of any sort except for the streets of Uruguay!!

    Can’t imagine him being in tip top condition to face us

    Fifa have bottled it. It will be interesting, though, if he stays with liverpool, if the FA can further reprimand him for bringing the game into disrepute, as there is no doubt at all he has damaged livepools rep as well as the premierships.

    Disgraceful. Liverpool are his employer and should have influenced his behaviour since his last ban. As such, the bulk of the ban should have impacted on his main job!

    Be interesting if criminal charge was instigated.

    He did get the 2 goals against us but was more down to the main man Stevie G, the CB’s didn’t cover themselves in glory either though!!

    “The player Luis Suarez is banned from taking part in any kind of football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) for a period of four months.”

    The punishment also prevents Suarez from attending matches during the period of the ban.

    “A stadium ban is pronounced against the player Luis Suarez in accordance with article 21 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code as follows: the player Luis Suarez is prohibited from entering the confines of any stadium during the period of the ban,” the statement continued.

    “The player Luis Suarez is prohibited from entering the confines of any stadium in which the representative team of Uruguay is playing while he has to serve the nine-match suspension.

    “The player Luis Suarez is ordered to pay a fine in the amount of 100,000 Swiss Francs.” Thats £66,000, not even a weeks wage

    The T shirt printing machines in Liverpool will be in full production now, I imagine logos such as “We Support Louis Suarez” or “Suarez is Innocent”.
    Their previous unqualified support of this racist thug and scumbag is now returning to bite them (no pun intended) on the jacksie.
    As KK would say “I love it”.

    What would be the better punishment, a ban for life or just getting his teeth knocked out, he wouldn’t be able to bite anyone then, he could try sucking them but it wouldn’t have the same effect would it ? Keep it clean people ?

    @GaryLineker: Suarez is banned from all football activities for 4 months. And 9 international matches.

    Let’s be honest he’s got off lightly
    Assuming his ban starts immediately then that makes his first eligible game, yup you guessed it, Liverpool vs Newcastle

    He’s a little sod, though I still don’t see why Liverpool should be punished to be honest.

    I’d be pretty pissed off if I supported Liverpool.

    Liverpool are actually getting more of a punishment than Uruguay.

    Suppose he can train on his own, but he would be nowhere near match fit.
