Luis Suarez has become infamous in the football world due to an incident in the 2014 World Cup, where he bit Giorgio Chiellini while playing for Uruguay.
The Uruguay international received a lengthy ban for this incident, and he was kicked out by FIFA for four months.
Suarez was also suspended from international play for nine games and had his appeal rejected, so Liverpool temporarily had to move on without their striker.
Although he had no luck with his previous appeal, a door has opened for Suarez as far as his biting ban is concerned.
Due to a corruption scandal in the FIFA organization, Suarez may be able to appeal his ban, which may make him able to compete in this summer’s Copa America tournament. This tournament will take place in Chile.
“He was a victim, without doubt, of this alleged corruption,” the Uruguayan Footballers’ Union said to Mirror on their plans to appeal Suarez’s suspension.
Suarez is trying to use the arrests of FIFA officials to his advantage, including Eugenio Figueredo, who is also from Uruguay.
