We're actually a little surprised that FIFA made a decision so quickly but it's happened: Luis Suarez is in trouble.
During the World Cup, while millions were watching, Uruguay's Luis took a bite out of Italy's Giorgio Chiellini, and it wasn't just a little nibble.
lost his entire left arm in the incident is doing okay thankfully.
Well, after FIFA had some disciplinary proceedings to decide what actions to take, the hammer has dropped and the verdict is in:
Suarez is BANNED for 4 months and suspended for 9 games after that!
Jeez! That's a hell of a punishment but honestly, it was his third offense, he needs to learn that's not cool.
Commenting on the whole situation, FIFA's vice-president Jim Boyle said:
"There is no doubt Luis Suarez is a fantastic footballer but, once again, his actions have left him open to severe criticism."
Yeah, you can def say that again!
Being banned for months only to come back to a suspension seems pretty serious. Hopefully he'll actually learn a lesson this time.
Or maybe they'll just make him wear a menacing Hannibal Lecter mask! That'd be a more fun punishment! LOLz!
