Chiellini: Suarez ban is excessive

Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini has said the nine game and four month ban given to Uruguay’s Luis Suarez for biting him in their World Cup encounter is harsh, according to Football Italia.

FIFA imposed a heavy sanction on Suarez for the incident and, as it stands he won’t be able to play for Liverpool until late October after the world governing body banned the forward from all football.


It is that part of the punishment that Chiellini feels is harsh, with the Juventus defender also lamenting the outcome of the match. Uruguay won 1-0 to confirm progression to the next round of the World Cup, condemning 2006 winners Italy to a group stage exit.


“Inside me there's no feelings of joy, revenge or anger against Suarez for an incident that happened on the pitch and that's done,” Chiellini said in a statement on his personal website. “There only remains the anger and the disappointment about the match.


“At the moment my only thought is for Luis and his family, because they will face a very difficult period,” Chiellini continued. “I have always considered unequivocal the disciplinary interventions by the competent bodies, but at the same time I believe that the proposed formula is excessive.
