Uruguayan Luis Suarez has been banned by FIFA for four months and nine games for biting Italian and Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay crucial game against Italy.


The incident occurred in the 79th minute of Uruguay’s crucial 1-0 win over Italy, which sent them through to the second round.

Chiellini had signaled to the refree and showed the bite marks on his shoulder but the Mexican referee Marco Rodriguez did not look into the matter.

After public cries and concern, FIFA then decided to launch an investigation and gave the Uruguay team till 5pm (9pm GMT) Thursday to present their defence.

Suarez was absent during the defence but Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) board member Alejandro Balbi said that 27 year-old Suarez came out worse from the confrontation and that Suarez was being victimized by the English, Italian and Brazilian media after he had knocked the two Super powers out of the tourney.

FIFA however decided enough is enough and have taken the hard stance on Suarez, this being the third time he has been found guilty of the same crime.
