FIFA says it has rejected Luis Suarez's appeal against his four-month ban from all football for biting an opponent in a World Cup match

The FIFA appeals committee rejected the appeal by Suarez and the Uruguay football federation in its entirety.

Suarez can appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The Uruguay and Liverpool forward was banned for nine Uruguay matches, four months from all football and fined 100,000 Swiss francs ($112,000) for biting the shoulder of Giorgio Chiellini during his team's 1-0 win over Italy in a group-stage game in Brazil.

It is the third time Suarez has been banned for biting an opponent, after similar incidents at both Ajax in the Dutch league and Liverpool in the English Premier League.

After the third time he should have been banned for life.
Canibalism has no place in football. Disgusting that Uruguay even defended this subhuman.
