Suarez's FIFA Suspension Could Be Appealed After Corruption Charges

May 28, 2015 1:01 PM

Luis Suarez's ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini could be appealed in the wake of FIFA's crisis, according to the Uruguayan Footballers' Union (MUFP).

Suarez was banned for four months by FIFA after the bite.

His suspension means Suarez will miss this summer's Copa America tournament in Chile, although the MUFP could appeal the sanction.


The body said on its Twitter account: "If Luis Suarez is in agreement, we will ask for the end of the suspension... due to [the player] having been suspended by an organ suspected of corruption.

"It doesn't matter that the clubs have withdrawn their complaints because of external pressures, it is time to unite and fight so that justice is done with their funds and the Suarez sanction.

"He was a victim, without doubt, of this alleged corruption."

Aug 19, 2014 10:58 AM

Luis Suárez promised not to bite any other players in his tenure with Barcelona.

Suárez also revealed that he was depressed following his suspensions by FIFA after he bit Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup.

“I say to fans, don’t worry, because I won’t do that any more," said Suárez.

“[It's] something that happened and afterwards I was really depressed and didn’t feel like doing anything.

“I spoke to my psychologist and he said I had to face it and say sorry.

“I did – now I would rather focus on the present, which is Barcelona.

“I am speaking to professionals – the right professionals but it is a private matter and I don’t want to comment further on that.”
