Suarez D-day fast approaching

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is set to get a judgement from the FA this week in regards to the allegations of racism levelled at him by Patrice Evra.

The Uruguay international was sighted having heated words with the Manchester United defender in the 1-1 draw between the sides back in October, in which the French full back accused Suarez of insulting him due to his ethnicity.

The FA have confirmed that the disciplinary hearing in relation to the claims has started, and will most likely be concluded by the end of the week.

Both Suarez and Evra will be summoned to give evidence in the hearing, as the sport’s governing body looks to assess all possible information before making a decision.

The South American categorically denies making racist remarks, and has been defended by his club over the incident.

Kenny Dalglish has criticised the FA for their handling of the allegations, especially given the amount of time that has elapsed since the game actually happened.

Suarez is also set to be investigated over claims that he made a derogatory gesture to Fulham fans after The Reds’ 1-0 defeat at Craven Cottage earlier in the month.
