FIFA reaffirm stance on Luis Suarez ban: He can't train but can be transferred
FIFA's disciplinary chief Claudio Sulser has said the Liverpool striker would be allowed to have a medical ahead of any transfer but the world governing body has stressed he cannot train with a team.
A FIFA spokeswoman said: "As said at various occasions he is not allowed to participate in any football activity during the ban period and as such is also not allowed to train with the team during the ban."
Liverpool remain in talks with Barcelona over the transfer of Suarez, and Sulser on Friday told a news conference that the player would be allowed to have a medical ahead of a transfer.
Sulser said: "The player cannot have any activity related to football, but a medical examination for a transfer yes - the sanction is not linked to transfer rights."
