Suarez ban upheld by CAS
The Uruguayan striker's four-month playing ban
remains in place, although he will now be
allowed to return to training

Luis Suarez has had his
appeal against the four-
month ban placed upon him
by Fifa rejected by the Court
of Arbitration for Sport, but
will be allowed to train with
Barcelona.
Suarez was originally banned
by Fifa from all football-related activity after biting
Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay's 1-0 win over Italy
in a World Cup fixture in Natal in June.
But CAS has made the decision that the Uruguayan
should be allowed to return to work, albeit with his
playing suspension remaining in place.
A CAS statment explained: "The CAS Panel found
that the sanctions imposed on the player were
generally proportionate to the offence committed.
It has however considered that the stadium ban
and the ban from 'any football-related activity' were
excessive given that such measures are not
appropriate to sanction the offence committed by
the player and would still have an impact on his
activity after the end of the suspension."
The 27-year-old can now train with his new
Barcelona team-mates for the first time since his
€88 million transfer from Liverpool, while he can
also commit to promotional activity. He is due to
return to the playing field on October 26, one day
after Barcelona are scheduled to play rivals Real
Madrid in La Liga. However, Suarez could well
feature in the Clasico as national TV could decide to
change it to a Sunday fixture.
The extent of Suarez's playing ban was said by CAS
to be proportionate with the act committed, with
Suarez having twice been caught biting opponents
in the past. He was banned for seven matches after
biting PSV's Ottman Bakkal while playing for Ajax,
then sat out 10 games following a similar incident at
Liverpool on Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.
He will sit out the first 11 games of Barcelona's
season, while his nine-match international ban is
still applicable. However, he is permitted to play
friendly matches, including Monday's Gamper
Trophy clash with Club Leon at Camp Nou.
