Luis Suarez’s biting victim, Giorgio Chiellini has termed the punishment meted out to the Uruguayan forward as “excessive.”
Chiellini said on his personal website:
“At the moment my only thought is for Luis and his family, because they will face a very difficult period. I have always considered unequivocal the disciplinary interventions by the competent bodies, but at the same time I believe that the proposed formula is excessive.
“I sincerely hope that he will be allowed, at least, to stay close to his team-mates during the games because such a ban is really alienating for a player. Now inside me there’s no feelings of joy, revenge or anger against Suarez for an incident that happened on the pitch and that’s done. There only remain (sic) the anger and the disappointment about the match.”
