Suarez’s 10-match bite ban is ‘absurd and unfair’- Reina

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has called the FA’s decision to ban Luis Suarez for 10 games ‘absurd and unfair’ after the Uruguay striker was banned for 10 games by an FA disciplinary panel yesterday for his bite on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

Reina told Spanish radio Cadena Cope: ‘I consider myself a friend of Luis. People in England are treating him different because he is Uruguayan; because he has had a previous episode like this.

Reina claims the Uruguayan’s ban is hypocritical of the Football Association

‘He knows full well that what he did was wrong but a ten-game ban seems to me absurd, out of proportion and unfair. It seems that the people making the decisions have got it in for Luis a little bit. That’s the way I see it.

‘I know Luis and I know that he is the complete opposite (off the pitch) he is a magnificent person and great team-mate.

‘But because of the way he plays, he is aggressive and very competitive, he plays like a street player and sometimes the way he is gets him into trouble.
