Are the FA right to ban Liverpool striker Luis Suarez for eight matches after the Patrice Evra racism row?
The Football Association have handed Liverpool striker Luis Suarez an eight-match ban and a fine of £40,000 after he was found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.
The Uruguayan was involved in a clash with the Frenchman during the match between the two sides at Anfield on October 15, with the United man pursuing a complaint after the match.
An independent regulatory commission announced on Tuesday that Evra's allegations against Suarez were proven and that the player, who denies the allegations being made against him, has two weeks to appeal against the decision and resulting punishment.
Already since the decision emerged, Liverpool have issued a robust statement saying they are very surprised and disappointed that the player has been found guilty of the allegations and have declared they will support all attempts to clear his name.
