Reds squad back Suarez

Published Add your comment

Liverpool's players have given their full backing to team-mate Luis Suarez after the striker was given an eight-match ban on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old received the punishment after an independent commission found him guilty of misconduct by using insulting words to Patrice Evra which included a reference to the Manchester United defender's colour.

He had been given the full support of the club, who insist the player is not a racist, and now his team-mates have followed suit, issuing a statement which read: "Luis Suarez is our team-mate and our friend and as a group of players we are shocked and angered that he has been found guilty by the FA."
