Suarez's various bans for biting now tally 39 games
Uruguay bad boy Luis Suarez was ruled out of the World Cup and the Premier League until the end of October in a mammoth FIFA ban.
The FIFA disciplinary committee, after more than 10 hours of talks over Wednesday night and Thursday morning, banned him from nine competitive Uruguay games and four months of all football activity.
This follows him biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini on the shoulder during Uruguay's victory over Liverpool, the third time he has done such an abhorrent act on the football field, which was taken into account by the committee.
Suarez will miss 13 Liverpool games and any transfer negotiations will not be affected by the ban but would obviously complicate matters, and has been fined £65,000.
will he still remain at Liverpool?
