Uruguayan official slams English FA

25 April 2013 10:07

After handing Luis Suarez a 10-match ban for biting, the English FA have been branded as 'hypocrites' by a Uruguayan football official.

The Liverpool striker was hit with the lengthy suspension after biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in Sunday's 2-2 Premier League draw at Anfield.

It was not the first time Suarez has bit an opponent – he sunk his teeth into the shoulder of PSV's Otman Bakkal while playing for Ajax in 2011 – and despite the 26-year-old posting apologies on Liverpool's official website, Twitter and contacting Ivanovic to personally say sorry, he was still severely punished.

And Fernando Sobral – member of the Uruguayan Football Association – aimed fire at England's governing body after the punishment was confirmed.

"We know him [Suarez] and we know how he is, but that does not justify some actions," he told Goal.com Argentina.

"Sometimes he makes mistakes, but then he recognises them. I can't say if the suspension is right or not because I don't know the [English] FA rules.

"But I know that English are hypocrites and they have double morals since a long time ago, something that you [Argentines] know perfectly. Despite what he did it's not correct, the fact of apologising is what he had to do."
