Suarez was handed a four month ban from all football activity on Thursday that means he will not be allowed to train or even step foot inside a stadium until its completion.

With opinion split of whether it is lenient or too harsh, FIFpro believe that a solution can be found that will allow him to serve out a lee lengthy ban.

A statement released by the organisation read:

“With his case subject to appeal, Luis Suarez has the right to due process. FIFPro believes all affected parties may benefit with time to remove the emotion, reflect and re-establish the facts in a calm and considered setting.

This is a very serious matter, as reflected by the sanctions imposed by FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee. The sanction will be reviewed and FIFA will have to focus especially on the accumulation of sanctions including a four-month ban from all football activity.

The fact that Suarez is prohibited from working for a long period must be addressed as it directly infringes his right to work. Also the fact that Liverpool FC is affected needs to be an important issue.”

With Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini also voicing his sympathy with the Liverpool ace it appears that the ban could be reconsidered after an appeal.
