Luis Suárez allowed to train during ban after FIFAlona backtracks.



Fifa has confirmed Uruguay have launched an appeal against Luis Suárez’s ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini but the world governing body appeared to contradict its earlier ruling by stating the striker would not be barred from training during his suspension.

Suárez was banned from “all football activity” after the incident in Uruguay’s World Cup match against Italy, and this was assumed to include training.

However Claudio Sulser, the head of Fifa’s disciplinary committee, appeared to clear Suárez to take part in pre-season training at a press conference in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday . “No you can’t limit those rights to the player, because it would be disproportionate,” he said.

Sulser went on to confirm that said Uruguay have launched an appeal against the ban, which also rules Suárez out of their next eight internationals.

“This is still an ongoing case and an appeal has been filed, so I prefer not to give my opinion,” he said.

“When the committee was analysing this case, one thing I mentioned in my capacity as the chairman is we don’t need to impose an exemplary sanction, we need to have justice and reach the sanction in a very severe case.”

Suarez: Who will bite now?Collapse )

Isn't it curious that now that it looks like Barcelona will get him, he can suddenly train? But keep on thinking Liverpool is the only club that's ever acted despicable when it comes to Luis Suarez, tbh!
