article 2689786 1F92254C00000578 116 634x356 FIFA stop Barcelona from publicly unveiling Luis Suarez due to his biting ban

The Press Association have announced on Sunday that FC Barcelona will not be allowed to publicly unveil Luis Suarez to their fans because of his biting ban.

In recent years Barcelona have made major events of revealing new signings to packed out crowds in the Camp Nou, however Suarez has been denied that fanfare because of his four month total football ban.

FIFA’s head of media Delia Fischer told PA Sport:

The ban relates to all football-related activity. He cannot be in a football-related public event irrespective of the venue. He cannot even be involved in a football-related charity event.

Many people are reacting to the news accusing FIFA of being ridiculous and heavy-handed.

Enhanced Betfair odds! 6/1 Germany or 8/1 Argentina to Win the World Cup final!!!!
