Blatter rules out Luis Suarez u-turn

Luis Suarez - heavily punished by FIFA

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has told the press that there will be no reversal of the decision to ban Luis Suarez from football for four months. The Uruguayan joined Liverpool last week in a massive 90 million euro deal.

Suarez has been fined heavily and banned from taking any part in a football match for the next four months.

"As a footballer, such a punishment hurts," said Blatter. "But as Fifa president I have to accept the decisions that are taken by our independent committees.

"I do hope that this player will come back to football because on the pitch I have seen his capacity technically and tactically.

"I do hope he will be back, he is now at one of the greatest clubs in the world."
