Things are not looking good for Liverpool and Luis Suarez right now. The FA have decided to charge Suarez for the incident with Patrice Evra following the Manchester United defender claiming that Suarez racially abused him. Now if Suarez is found guilty, he could face a minimum ban of 6 matches and a hefty fine. But Liverpool have already come out and said that they are fully behind Suarez and our striker is not going to plead guilty to the charges.

In a statement, the FA said: “It is alleged that Suarez used abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards Manchester United’s Patrice Evra contrary to FA rules.

“It is further alleged that this included a reference to the ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race of Patrice Evra.”

Liverpool responded by saying, “The club this afternoon received notification from the Football Association of their decision to charge Luis Suarez and will take time to properly review the documentation which has been sent to us.

“We will discuss the matter fully with him when he returns from international duty, but he will plead not guilty to the charge and we expect him to request a personal hearing.

“Luis remains determined to clear his name of the allegation made against him by Patrice Evra.

“The club remain fully supportive of Luis in this matter.”

The fact that the FA have decided to lay a charge means that there must be some sort of evidence to support Evra’s claims but at the end of the day the law should run its course and hopefully Suarez will not be found guilty.

What do you make of all of this?

    As a defense attorney, i can spot a railroading coming a mile away. They wouldnt have quoted the overbroad language of the violation unless they already had a lame explanation of how the use of the word Negrito constituded a violation despite the fact that it carries no racial connotation in Uruguay. He’ll get a mitigated two or three match ban with no proof of malice whatsoever.

  2. Jared says:

    Just because Evra plays for the scums, FA probably freaked out the moment the red nose walked into their office.

    I don’t think there is any evidence enough to prove that Luis said something racism to Evra, or else, the FA would’ve charged Luis way earlier, do they even need to wait till now? They just want to find faults with our best performer on the pitch and suspend him from matches. What’s new anyway?

  3. pls make peace between both,and lets all b well between them pls.

    This world be a big blow to Liverpool. Remember how lightly Eric Cantona got away for landing a kung fu kick on the fans. If Suarez is a MU player he would be let off scot free.

      In accordance with the Football Association’s wishes, Manchester United suspended Cantona for the remaining four months of the 1994–95 season, which ruled him out of first team action as United were still in the hunt for a second double. He was also fined £20,000.The Football Association then increased the ban to eight months.think before speaking you thick TIT.

    As a life long Liverpool supporter who is Black 6ft 6 and weighing 100kg and can run the 100 meters in 10.7 seconds,if Suarez called me that he’d be swallowing his considerable large teeth.
    From the reaction I see here you most of you simply don’t get it.
    Would Suarez call a Black Referee that? NO

      If a black man called u a nigger, u would be all Yo MY NIGGEEEEER!!!

      and if a white dude calls u a nigger, u all run like fuckin pussies with your emotions

      Sort it out.

    This is an interesting one as Suarez has actually admitted saying the word ‘Negrito’ whatever that means in Spanish and whatever it’s use in Uraguay is.

    The real interesting one for me is what the FA make of their darling England Captain John Terry where he’s denied the charge yet the camera captures verbatim every word he said to Ferdinand…. perhaps he’ll claim it was Cockney Rhyming Slang

  7. njanja says:

    As long as Suarez has testified to using the N word on Evra,KK should start preparing for a life without him. Let see how it pans out though

  8. Racism has to be eradicated from football. The only way to do this is to impose heavy, heavy bans on players found guilty of racism.
    It looks as though Suarez has been found guilty of this. As much as it would hurt Liverpool FC on the pitch, the right action would be for the FA to ban him for a minimum of 10 games, if not considerably more.
    This sort of behaviour is not acceptable from any player inside, or outside of, Liverpool FC.

    • don says:

      partly agree with the if guilty then should be punished bit but the Looks like he’s been found guilty bit??? It should go 1 offence,
      2 accusation, 3 charge, 4 hearing, 5 guilty or not guilty, 6, if guilty,sentence.
      Lets wait for the hearing and see what comes out, if he is guilty then punish him as we need to drive racism out of society, but lets try to stick to doing things the right way.

    Am black african man and if someone calls me nigreto or even black man i would not be bothered, i dont thing any white person will warry if i call him White man. there is no issue like the FIFA President says both players must shake hands and call the whole thing off.

  10. Chris Lam says:

    Fact. If Evra said Suarez is racially abuse him (At least 10 times)…why does he keep on playing during that time where he can confess to the referee & the bench about the issue & stop playing.

    I believe anyone of us if we being abuse on the spot…we will have the intention to whack the person already. How come he still get going..?

    I believe that Suarez may say something coz we all can see during match how evra man-handed suarez without suarez getting any protection…if i were suarez during that match..i really felt offended.

    If a world class defender is not marking & tackling a striker professionally..This is abuse of the beautiful football.

  11. Ben Roberts says:

    If all the evidence there is, is Suarez using the term “Negrito,” there is no case whatsoever. Ask any reasonably intelligent Spanish speaker and they will tell you that negrito is akin to the word “pal” or “mate”. If there is evidence that he said something else then I will hold my tongue, but negrito is as racist as saying “buddy”. If this is all that was said, I am seriously concerned with the FA and the treatment of Liverpool FC and its players.

    I’m sure I’m not the first to come cross this quote but its worth showing its from an interview in spanish by the little pea before he went to old trafford?/ hmm

    ‘Javier Hernandez on Omar Esparza’s goal, vs Tigers: “I liked the goal of the Negrito (Omar Esparza), I think it’s a sign of Chivas youth.”

    is it my imagination or is the use of the word Negrito here used in a casual manner backing up suarez’s case and helping the rest of us understand his confusion as to wht all the fuss was about.
