Football Association have announce that Luis Suarez has been charged for his alleged racially abusive comments towards Manchester United’s Patrice Evra. You can read the FA statement below. Liverpool football club have informed that Luis Suarez will plead not guilty and the player will request personal hearing.
The FA comment read, “The FA has today charged Liverpool’s Luis Suarez following an incident that occurred during the Liverpool versus Manchester United fixture at Anfield on 15 October 2011.”
“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.”
To be honest the amount of and/or in the statement is quite bemusing. Both the set of players and clubs are standing their ground but FA. it seems, are still unsure about the issue.
