Liverpool players show their support of Luis Suarez
Liverpool Football Club say they and their lawyers will take their time to go through the Football Association’s 115-page document regarding the reasons as to why Luis Suarez received an 8-game ban for allegedly racially abusing Manchester Utd defender, Patrice Evra.

The report was made public on New Years’ Eve, 24 hours after the club had received it themselves.

An LFC statement reads:

The Club can confirm that they received the written reasons from the Regulatory Commission at short notice last night on the evening of the game against Newcastle United.

The player, the Club and our legal advisors will now take the necessary amount of time to read, digest and properly consider the contents of the 115 page judgment and will make no further comment at present.

Liverpool and Suarez have two weeks to reply to the findings. An appeal would push Suarez’s suspension back further.
