Ferguson backs Suarez decision

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has broken his silence over Luis Suarez's ban for allegedly racially abusing Patrice Evra.

The Liverpool striker was suspended for eight games and fined £40,000 after being found guilty of using insulting words towards the United full-back, with reference to Evra's skin colour.

"Our support of Patrice was obvious right from the word go and that's still the same," said Ferguson, in comments reported by the Guardian. "The matter is over and I think we're satisfied that they [the Football Association's independent commission] found the right decision."
