Luis Suarez banned for four months: Should have been for life

Luis Suarez banned for four months: Should have been for life
Luis Suarez should have been banned for life and not 4 months? FIFA has announced that Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has been suspended for nine international matches and banned from all football activity for four months for the bite on Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini. He bridged article 48 and 51 of the FIFA disciplinary code which is an act of non sporting behavior towards another player. The first match of suspension will be the match between Uruguay vs Colombia. 

What a joke and absolute disgrace from FIFA, the punishment is not strong enough. The biggest loser in this is Liverpool FC. I really feel sorry for Liverpool's fans and the football club. This guy is an animal and deserves more than 4 football months, nine international matches and a £66, 000 fine? A stadium ban for Luis Suarez during the World Cup.

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

"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," Sulser said.

"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 code. The decision comes into force as soon it is communicated."

FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce backed the ban, saying: "I think the punishment that has been handed out to Luis Suarez is fully justified. Hopefully he will have learnt that this type of behaviour cannot be tolerated under any circumstances."
