Suarez hearing set for conclusion

Published Add your comment

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez's disciplinary hearing on a charge that he racially abused Manchester United defender Patrice Evra is due to end on Thursday.

Suarez has been charged with abusing Evra, and referring to his "ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race" by the Football Association. The charge followed a month-long investigation. The Uruguay striker strongly denied the accusation and Liverpool say they remain "fully supportive" of the 24-year-old.

Evra made the claims immediately after the match at Anfield on October 15, telling French TV station Canal Plus that Suarez had used a racist insult to him "at least 10 times". If Suarez is found guilty he could be banned or fined, or both.
