Ban

Suarez had been served with a ban, abolishing him from football related activity for the next four months which, also included a nine game absence from the International stage with Uruguay. 

The controversial Liverpool player, along with some help from the Uruguayan FA put forward an official appeal to the world's governing body FIFA , only for their committee to publicly announce earlier that they have denied it. 

The head of media  for FIFA, Delia Fischer spoke in a news conference in Brazil's capital Rio de Janeiro earlier today, confirming that they are standing by their original punishment. 

"The FIFA appeal committee has decided to reject the appeals lodged by both the Uruguayan player Luis Suarez and the Uruguayan FA, and to confirm the decision rendered by the FIFA disciplinary committee on June 25 2014 in its entirety," Fischer told reporters.

"The terms of the decision taken by the FIFA appeal committee were communicated to the player and the Uruguayan FA today."

It means that Suarez will categorically not be allowed to play any club football until October and will miss the next nine matches international matches with his country.

As well as this, the 27-year-old has been hit with a £66,000 fine and will not even be allowed to train during his ban.

History

This is, of course, not the first time Suarez had found himself in trouble, with him now experiencing a total of four long bans in as many years.   

His latest biting incident is his third overall after he initially was initially banned for his bite on PSV Eindhoven midfielder Oman Bakkal in 2010, followed by Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic three years later. 

As well as this, he was involved in a fierce with Manchester United's Patrice Evra, after supposedly racially abusing the french full-back, two years ago.

What next? 

Despite his actions , suarez is still a wanted man for his undeniable talent on the pitch. 

With Liverpool ready to give up on their star player in an attempt to save their reputation, a move to Spanish giants Barcelona appears to be imminent with them set to pay in the region of £70 million  

In regards to the appeal being denied, the player and the Uruguayan Fa can launch a further appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, if they decided to.
