With it being the third time the striker has committed such an offence, he has been slapped with the biggest ban in Fifa’s history, as well as an additional ban of nine international games and a fine of 100,000 Swiss Francs.
Following a record-breaking season from Suarez, he was believed to have become a ‘reformed character’, but his regression towards childish stupidity has landed him with a hefty suspension, of which he will doubtless appeal.
Surprisingly enough, with the issue being the largest debate in sport over the past 48 hours, Twitter has been out in force giving their reaction.
Here is the general gist of public reaction to Suarez’s ban.
Well done, FIFA. Strong stance. Powerful message with heavy punishment for Suarez. After all, third time he’s done it. #worldcup

Remember what English people did to David Beckham for being conned by Simeone? Uruguayans seem very forgiving — Barney Ronay (@barneyronay) June 26, 2014
If you bite a fellow player for the third time, you leave yourself open to some pretty draconian punishments. — Miguel Delaney (@MiguelDelaney) June 26, 2014
#suarez banned from all football for 4 months. Does that mean he can’t have a kick about in garden with his kids ?

#Suarez got away lightly I think

You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who sympathises with Suarez, with most opinions ranging from congratulatory praise for Fifa, to those who believe the ban was too lenient. Either way, he has few supporters outside of Uruguay.
