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?
