Earlier, FIFA announced that Luis Suarez has been banned for nine games and from all football for four months. Fifa also issued stadium ban against Luis Suarez. He cannot attend any football match and is fined 100,000 Swiss Francs. An appeal can be lodged. Its very likely Luis Suarez will appeal against the ban. Suarez and Chiellini clashed in the 79th minute of the game, television replays showed Suarez has headbutted the Italy defender before going down Chiellini then accused him of biting his shoulder. The referee didn’t see anything, Chiellini kept showing him bite marks but the referee refused to take any actions.
Reports from Spain today indicated Barcelona want Suarez to apologise if he wants to make his dream move to Camp Nou.
Transfer of Liverpool forward Luis Suarez was well-advanced but have been put on hold after biting incident. Club expect apologies. [md]
