Liverpool have defended Luis Suarez and say they are "surprised and disappointed" he has been charged with racially abusing Patrice Evra.

The striker has been banned for eight matches and fined £40,000 by the Football Association for his part in an altercation with the Manchester United defender at Anfield on October 15. Suarez has 14 days to appeal the decision and his suspension is not due to begin until the completion of any appeals process.

The Reds did not officially confirm whether or not they would be appealing, but said: "Liverpool Football Club is very surprised and disappointed with the decision of the Football Association Commission to find Luis Suarez guilty of the charges against him. We look forward to the publication of the Commission's Judgment."
