After learning of Suarez’s 10-game suspension for his attack of Chelsea’s defender Branislav Ivanovic, Suarez’s future might taken a different road than before. The Uruguayan international has been closely followed by many prestigious European teams. Juventus and Real Madrid have been strongly linked with the Liverpool striker. Suarez who bit Ivanovic last week during Liverpool’s clash with Chelsea has been handed a 10 game suspension from the FA. The Uruguayan striker had mentioned earlier in the week that he was going to accept whatever penalty the FA was going to impose on him.

This isn’t Suarez’s fist offense neither on the Premier League or in his career. The striker was previously suspended for eight games and fined £40,000 by the FA for “racially abusing” Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra in December 2011. Even before that incident occurred Suarez was also suspended while playing for Ajax for biting PSV’s midfielder Otman Bakkal’s shoulder during a match in November 2010.

The FA’s recent 10 match ban on Suarez means Suarez will miss Liverpool’s remaining four games of this season and the first six domestic matches of the next campaign, which will potentially if not appealed, rule out the striker until October of this year. The suspension will also include an undisclosed monetary fine which the Liverpool star would like to be donated to the to families that were affected by the 1989 Hillsborough Stadium disaster, which killed 96 Liverpool fans.

The FA suspension will have significant importance in Luis Suarez’s future at Liverpool. Recently it was reported that the striker might be considering offers from abroad.

Liverpool has been constantly reminding teams that the star striker will not be sold; However, they were not expecting the suspension to be as lengthy as it is. The team showed their disappointment with the FA in an official statement released today.

Suarez’s suspension will officially start this Saturday when Liverpool takes on Newcastle United at St James’ Park. The Uruguayan star will also miss important games against Everton, Fulham, and QPR. Suarez’s stellar season will end with 30 goals.

The Liverpool striker has until Friday at noon to appeal the decision.

    If he leaves it will be to South America where they will give the dodgy FA the finger. They are a gang of ManU supporting crooks.
