Suarez to learn his fate

LUIS SUAREZ will learn tomorrow whether his four-month ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup has been reduced.

Suarez has taken his appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which has announced it will deliver its verdict at 3pm local time (2pm Irish) tomorrow, having heard the case last week.

"The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will announce its decision in the matter Luis Suarez, FC Barcelona & the Uruguayan FA on Thursday 14 August 2014 at around 3pm. This case was heard on 8 August 2014 at the CAS offices in Lausanne," a statement said.

Suarez was sent home from the World Cup in disgrace after he sank his teeth into Italy's Chiellini and world governing body FIFA hit him with a four-month ban from all football, a nine-match suspension from international matches, and a hefty fine.

However, the incident did not deter Barcelona from completing a £75million deal to sign the 27-year-old from Liverpool after the World Cup.
