Suarez's Four-Month Ban Upheld

MOST COMMENTED

Luis Suarez's four-month ban for biting was upheld by the European Union’s Court of Arbitration for Sport on Thursday, but as a result of the appeal, the Uruguayan striker did gain the right to train with his club and play in both club and international friendly matches, as well as the ability to attend soccer matches and appear in promotional materials.

The decision means that Suarez will remain out of action for Barcelona until Oct. 26, which, coincidentally, is the same day as the first El Clasico of the season away to Real Madrid. He will also continue to serve the remaining eight matches of a record nine-game international ban that was part of the sanctions handed down by FIFA after Suarez was found guilty of biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini during a World Cup game in June.

Immediately following news of CAS's decision, World players’ organization FIFPro said it was “disappointed that the court had decided not to strongly diminish the sanctions." CAS will publish the reasons for its decision at a later date. Read the original story...
