FIFA also said this...

“Such behaviour cannot be tolerated on any football pitch, and in particular not at a FIFA World Cup when the eyes of millions of people are on the stars on the field. The Disciplinary Committee took into account all the factors of the case and the degree of Mr Suárez’s guilt in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Code. The decision comes into force as soon it is communicated,” said Claudio Sulser, chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.

I would have liked to have seen FIFA mandate some sort of therapy for Suarez. The guy obviously needs some help .

So glad that it's 9 because a lot of the talk was around 2-3 games at most. Maybe he needs to meet Mike Tyson

So can he still play soccer?

 Not a bad punishment.  Since it is his third time doing it though I would think it would be more severe.

This is for international play only. Nothing was done for him being as a player with the premier league. Will be curious to see if Liverpool or will Sir Dave Richards (board of premier league) do another suspension for their league or not.

I think it's more likely that they sell him to another team. Even with this 3rd biting incident, I'm sure they could get a pretty penny out of him.

It suspends him in the premier league also. The four months is a world wide ban.
