Luis Suarez has been handed a one match ban for a gesture he made towards Fulham fans and will now miss Friday night’s match against Newcastle.
He has also been fined £20,000 by the Football Association.
Hypocrisy is becoming a speciality for the FA:
Guess which of the above resulted in action, and which ones didnt?
9 May 2011: Manchester United and England player Wayne Rooney is photographed and videotaped making a clear V-sign toward Chelsea fans. FA decides not to take action.
17 December 2007: Chelsea and England player Ashley Cole is photographed making a clear V-sign toward Arsenal fans. There is no immediately available record of the FA taking any action.
19 January 2010: Manchester United and England player Gary Neville is photographed clearly extending a middle finger toward Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez in full view of fans, at the end of a heated local derby. There is no immediately available record of the FA taking any action.
