Liverpool striker Luis Suarez could face a two year worldwide ban after another biting incident during Uruguay’s World Cup clash against Italy, Mirror reports.
FIFA will be investigating Suarez’s confrontation with Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini after the Uruguayan seemed to sink his teeth into the Italian’s shoulder.
And the former Ajax star is looking at the possibility of two years without football.
In the last round of fixtures in Group D of the World Cup, Uruguay needed a win to progress into the knock-out stages.
With the game tied at 0-0 but Italy a man down, footage showed Suarez ‘biting’ his opponent while inside the penalty box.
FIFA has announced they will look into the matter, with Suarez likely to face a long ban if found guilty.
A FIFA spokesperson said: “We are awaiting the official match reports and will gather all the necessary elements in order to evaluate the matter.”
The maximum ban set by FIFA’s regulations is 24 matches or two years, which means the 28-year-old could miss the start of Liverpool’s Premier League campaign next season.
