The Special One does not like that fact that Suarez must stay away from stadiums.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has said that Liverpool striker Luis Suarez’s four-month ban from playing football for biting Giorgio Chiellini “is deserved”.
Suarez cannot take part in any football-related activity until late October as part of his punishment from FIFA.
The 27-year-old’s suspension was particularly lengthy because he had already bitten two players during his senior career – PSV’s Otman Bakkal in 2010 and Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in April last year.
Mourinho does not think Suarez, Liverpool or Uruguay have any right to complain about the playing ban, but he does feel that banning him from attending matches as a supporter is a tad harsh.
“The punishment is deserved because it is an accumulation of the same negative act on the football pitch,” Mourinho told Yahoo.
“What I really don’t like in football is the stadium ban.
“What’s the problem for Suarez to be in the stadium, in the middle of the Uruguay supporters watching the game between his country and Colombia?
“It’s too hard, it’s something that I really don’t understand.
“But his punishment comes as a sequence of three similar mistakes in three different situations. It is something that he deserves. It has to stop.”
Suarez will miss 13 first-team Liverpool matches, as well as all of the club’s pre-season games.
He will also be forced to sit out of Uruguay’s next eight senior internationals, having already missed yesterday’s 2-0 defeat to Colombia.
