Suarez Banned from World Cup for Biting Giorgio Chiellini│Fined £66,000




Earlier this week, it was reported that Luis Suarez bit Giorgio Chiellini, a player from the Italian team during Tuesday’s Uruguay vs. Italy World Cup match.

Following the incident, FIFA has banned Uruguay’s Suarez from all “football-related activities” for four months, ruling him out of the rest of the World Cup and the start of the domestic season, The Guardian reports.

He has also been banned from entering any football stadium during the duration of the  ban, and has been fined £66,000.

“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,” said Claudio Sulser, chair of the disciplinary committee.

    That is still a lighter sentence for someone who is known to be a bitter and a bully. I wish they would have banned him for 2 years. Still it’s better than nothing at all.

    Very harsh decision. I think Suarez issue is more of psychological than intent…it happened at the heat of the moment.Help is what he requires and not this harsh ban.

      Oh so FIFA should help him seek help for his issues? That’s his responsibility and not that of FIFA. If he cannot behave himself on the pitch, then he deserves the punishment. This is the 3rd time he’s doing this…If he still does not realise he needs to seek help then he might as well say bye bye to his career.

    A tad lenient. Uruguay will go on without him.

    What will Liverpool do? Awaiting their statement after reading FIFA’s memo.

    The appropriate punishment should be to tie him to a chair and pull out all his front teeth without anaesthetic. Shikena!
