Maradona slams FIFA over Suarez ban- ‘He did not kill anyone, the ban is a disgrace’
– Diego Maradona has lambasted FIFA over the four-month ban handed to Uruguay striker, Luis Suarez, terming it “a disgrace”.
The Liverpool hit-man has been slapped with a nine-game suspension from international football and banned from any football related activity for four months, for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini on the shoulder.
While this will be the third time the striker will be serving a ban for biting another player, the Argentina legend says the punishment is excessive.
Maradona told De Zurda TV show:
“This decision is a disgrace.
“I can’t understand this. Who did Suarez kill to get this kind of ban. Why don’t [Fifa] handcuff him and send him to Guantanamo [Bay]?
“A player works hard the whole year to be able to play at the World Cup, and Luis scored 29 goals and they kick him out of the World Cup like this. It’s unbelievable.
“Remember [Zinedine] Zidane and what he did in that  World Cup final? Fifa then gave him the Golden Ball.”
