Uruguay to appeal Suarez four-month ban

Saturday, July 05, 2014

RIO DE JANEIRO - Uruguay has lodged an appeal against the four-month football ban imposed on star striker Luis Suarez for his World Cup bite, a top FIFA official says.

The Uruguay Football Association had until this coming Sunday to make an appeal against the sanctions ordered after Suarez bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Claudio Sulser, head of FIFA's disciplinary commission, confirmed to reporters that the appeal had been made but insisted he could make no other comment.

Suarez was banned from all football activity for four months, suspended for nine internationals and fined 100,000 Swiss francs for his third offence of biting an opposition player.

He has since made a public apology to Chiellini while Spanish giants Barcelona are negotiating to buy the prolific striker from England's Liverpool.
