Luis Suarez to miss opening day clash with Saints after being banned from all football activity for four months by FIFA after biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini

Basingstoke Gazette: Suarez to miss Saints clash after FIFA ban him for biting Suarez to miss Saints clash after FIFA ban him for biting

Luis Suárez is out of Saints’ visit to Anfield on the opening day of the season, after receiving a lengthy ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.

The Liverpool and Uruguay striker has been suspended by FIFA for nine international matches and banned from all football activity for four months.

Suárez was seen apparently sinking his teeth into the shoulder of Chiellini during the second half of his country's 1-0 win against Italy on Tuesday - a result that sent them into the knockout stages.

As well as missing the rest of the World Cup, he will again be absent at the start of the Premier League season.

He and the Uruguay FA are able to appeal against the sanctions, but, even if that is lodged and the process is under way, he will not be able play in any matches.

FIFA confirmed that Suárez could still be transferred during his ban.

Suárez was suspended for the first six matches of the last campaign – part of his punishment for another bite, that time on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

That meant he was absent for Liverpool during Saints’ 1-0 victory at Anfield last September.

He will be missing again when the teams meet this season, as Ronald Koeman takes his new side to face the Reds on the opening day of the campaign.

FIFA confirmed that Suárez has also been fined 100,000 Swiss francs (just under £66,000), while he is banned from entering any stadium during the period of his punishment.

A statement from FIFA read: ''The player, Luis Suárez, is to be suspended for nine official matches.

"The first match of this suspension is to be served in the upcoming FIFA World Cup fixture between Colombia and Uruguay on June 28, 2014.

"The remaining match suspensions shall be served in Uruguay's next FIFA World Cup match(es), as long as the team (remains in the competition), and/or in the representative team's subsequent official matches.

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

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

''The player Luis Suárez 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 Suárez is ordered to pay a fine in the amount of 100,000 Swiss Francs.''

Claudio Sulser, the chairman of the FIFA disciplinary committee, said the panel had taken into account all the factors in the case.

Sulser said: ''Such behaviour cannot be tolerated on any football pitch, and in particular not at a FIFA World Cup when the eyes of millions of people are on the stars on the field.

''The disciplinary committee took into account all the factors of the case and the degree of Mr Suarez's guilt in accordance with the relevant provisions of the dode. The decision comes into force as soon it is communicated.''

sorry but a 4 month ban and a £66k fine is very lenient. should have been a 1yr ban, a fine of £66k fine probably isn't even a weeks wages, why cant they fine him 4 months wages?
what are they going to do next time he des it, and its likely he will.

Sorry but the punishment is far too low for Suarez and I'm hoping that your comment is meant as sarcastic humour or tongue in cheek banter.

Just because a deliberate "studs up" offence is punished relatively leniently doesn't mean that "a nibble on a defender" as you put it, should practically go unpunished by comparison. We shouldn't be reducing the biting punishment, we should be increasing the studs up punishment.

But sadly FIFA, the governing body of the sport worldwide, are just far too weak with situations like this.

Millions of people, many of them children playing for junior clubs and in the parks across hundreds of countries will have seen what Suarez did AND will know that it's not the first (or even the 2nd) time that he's done it. So short a ban will teach our junior and adolescent players next to nothing about Fair Play and about the consequences if they were to copy Suarez or do something similar (punching, stamping on or deliberately and aggressively kicking a player) in their own matches.

I really think FIFA have bottled this, possibly because the striker is supposedly one of the best players in the world. They had a perfect opportunity to make a real statement of intent about stamping out deliberate and violent foul play. They could have banned him for much longer (a minimum of 12 months IMO) to show that such behaviour will absolutely not be tolerate and that no matter who you are, you will be penalised severely. The image of the game as well as the safety of all that play it is at stake here.

And a £66K fine? Probably about one quarter of one week's salary to him.

An absolute joke IMO and a real missed opportunity to set an example to others.

Far too lenient a punishment for a third offence, it should have been a one year ban from all football, the fine is incidental considering his wages.

FIFA have been far to weak over this matter four months from now means he will only miss 6 or 7 games which is the same as last season. So punishment not much worst to discourage him from doing it again.

Then up to Liverpool what they decide to do with him for the year - unlikely to be able to sell him so gardening leave ?

I wouldn't do it personally, but if some evil thug ran into him in the street, sliced his balls off and broke both his legs before emptying his bank account, I'd still feel he got away lightly.

Let's put this into context, if you or I did it to a copper in the street three times, we'd be serving time inside.
Interesting context, yeah, if you did it to a copper I would indeed expect a spell inside. Equally, if you did it to Katy Perry or Justin Beiber I would expect some recriminations, though it may be worth it in both cases for different reasons.

Anyway, Suarez has a very valid excuse for his actions.

Apparently he mistakenly thought Chiellini had a chip on his shoulder.
I heard Suarez saying in an interview something about Chiellini being a little ahead of him and he was just trying to make up ground.

At least, I think that's what he said. Literally, it was something like, 'I just needed to catch up'.

Thinking about it, maybe he actually said, 'I just needed some ketchup'.

If the appeal is some futile attempt to argue it wasn't his fault (which clearly it was), or, to argue the punishment is too harsh (which clearly it isn't), I sincerely hope that FIFA have the scope within their rules, and, the courage to increase his ban because such a 'pantomime' hammers home the fact that he just does not 'get it'.

the FA can increase an appeal of a straight red card and extend a ban so why not. I hope they do increase it to a 6 month ban, even though I still don't think that's long enough.
I cant get why people tying to excuse his behaviour, biting someone is nothing like an over the top tackle or an elbow. both of those are `part of the game` ie, you can accidently miss-time a tackle or catch someone with an elbow. deliberate bad tackles or elbows have severe punishments and can be extended if the FA see fit. there are no sanctions for biting because it simply doesn't happen, except for one player.
I`m fed up with diverpooh fans saying its `unfair` on them and `why are diverpooh being punished`.diverpooh are being punished because he is their player, and its the player whos being punished. what do they FIFA to do? just giving him an international ban is like saying `what you did is awful but we don't think its that bad`. millions of kids would have seen him bite 3 different players now and unless he is stopped from doing it they will think its ok to do. just like diving was punished lightly in the past so players kept doing it. now the kids who grew up watching klinsmann diving his way through his spuds career are doing it all the time in the prem. its so bad that commentators and pundits are saying `any contact and your entitled to go down`!
we can not allow this player to keep biting any player he doesn't like, its the act of a petulant child who isn't in control of his actions. FIFA should have insisted he got help from a specialist before he is allowed to play again and told him if he did it again at anytime he would be facing a lifetime ban.
suarez is a disgrace to football and has turned a wonderful world cup (except for England) into the luis suarez affair!
I have absolutely no sympathy for him Uruguay or diverpooh. its not as if diverpooh didn't know he could do this before they brought him! they will now probably try to defend him or sell him.
I hope FIFA throw his appeal out and extend his ban, but I doubt they will.

so are those travelling fans who are going to the first game at diverpooh going to have a bit of fun and wear Hannibal lecter masks during the game? wonder if diverpooh would let them into the ground.

My psychologist says they should lock Suarez in a room and show videos of all his misdeeds so that he gets very annoyed with himself. "Within three hours he will attack himself." he said. "He will chase himself round and round in circles and try to bite his own goolies off."

He is an acknowledged authority specialising in psychological problems in football. Certainly he helped my team, Ringwood Latent Paranoids beat Salisbury Neurotics in the Freudian Sunday League last season - and indeed coached Romsey Nail Biters to their great cup win over Fordingbridge Wed Wetters.

Very good that FIFA have acted so quickly. Two 'Buts' though -But, has he also been punished for cheating because his dive after the biting incident was blatant simulation to try to suggest that the innocent player had attacked him. Worthy of a separate punishment.
The second But is- what punishment is there to be for the attempted cover-up by the Uruguay team, including their captain, who came out with a pack of lies and false accusations to journalists?

Sorry but the punishment is far too low for Suarez and I'm hoping that your comment is meant as sarcastic humour or tongue in cheek banter.

Just because a deliberate "studs up" offence is punished relatively leniently doesn't mean that "a nibble on a defender" as you put it, should practically go unpunished by comparison. We shouldn't be reducing the biting punishment, we should be increasing the studs up punishment.

But sadly FIFA, the governing body of the sport worldwide, are just far too weak with situations like this.

Millions of people, many of them children playing for junior clubs and in the parks across hundreds of countries will have seen what Suarez did AND will know that it's not the first (or even the 2nd) time that he's done it. So short a ban will teach our junior and adolescent players next to nothing about Fair Play and about the consequences if they were to copy Suarez or do something similar (punching, stamping on or deliberately and aggressively kicking a player) in their own matches.

I really think FIFA have bottled this, possibly because the striker is supposedly one of the best players in the world. They had a perfect opportunity to make a real statement of intent about stamping out deliberate and violent foul play. They could have banned him for much longer (a minimum of 12 months IMO) to show that such behaviour will absolutely not be tolerate and that no matter who you are, you will be penalised severely. The image of the game as well as the safety of all that play it is at stake here.

And a £66K fine? Probably about one quarter of one week's salary to him.

An absolute joke IMO and a real missed opportunity to set an example to others.
football is full of fairies.... a bite on the shoulder that did not draw blood and the Italian went crying to the ref... it happens in rugby all the time.... Suarez is simply the victim of a witch hunt. What would you choose , a set of broken ribs or a "temporary dent in your shoulder"... he has been stitched up . The punishment is ridiculous and he need some therapy not to be treated like a leper... pathetic over reaction to a nothing incident.

The latest statement from Luis Suarez is he did not bite the Italian Defender even though he headed for him as the corner was given with intent, he lost his balance so all the millions of people who watched the incident all over the world haven't a brain and got it wrong, well if you believe him you must believe in Fairies and Angels, what utter utter nonsense and what a fool he's made himself for the 3rd time, it's his own brain that needs help isn't it or am I deluded?
