Diego Maradona makes his protest against the four-month ban imposed on Luis Suarez

Argentina legend Diego Maradona has expressed his support for Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez after he was slapped with a four-month ban by FIFA for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Maradona appeared on television in South America wearing a t-shirt which read: “Luis, we are with you”.

The Argentinean legend is probably the most controversial figure in the history of the World Cup given his infamous 'Hand of God' goal against England at Mexico in '86 and the fact that he was sent home from USA '94 after a failed drug test.

The Uruguayan FA is appealing the ban imposed on Luis Suarez which will see him miss the next nine international games.
