Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has decided not to appeal the 10-match suspension issued to him by an Independent Regulatory Committee commissioned by The FA.
There were concerns on late Thursday that Suarez may appeal, which would risk an even greater penalty. But Suarez decided not to appeal and now will serve a 10-match suspension with immediate effect that applies to Liverpool’s domestic first-team fixtures.
It means that the Uruguayan footballer will be out of action for Liverpool until late September.
Suarez received the 10-match suspension after biting Branislav Ivanovic in last Sunday’s match versus Chelsea.
Now that the punishment has been handed, do you think Luis Suarez will stay at Liverpool or will he try to move abroad since he feels victimized? And, with the 10-match suspension, how much of an impact is this going to have on Liverpool’s 2013-14 season without Suarez? Let us know in the comments section below.
