Liverpool's Suarez's 10-game ban verdict 'unfair' and 'out of proportion': Pepe Reina

Last Updated: Fri, Apr 26, 2013 06:23 hrs

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has said that the striker Luis Suarez is being singled out and has become a victim of his own reputation following his 'biting shame.'

Reina feels the 10-match ban on his team-mate for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic is 'absurd' and 'unfair' and has questioned the FA disciplinary commission on their verdict, the Daily Star reports.

Raising doubts over whether the treatment that Suarez has been meted out is because of his Uruguayan nationality or because of his controversial deeds, Reina has backed Suarez's behaviour by saying that he has apologized for his mistake and the ban has gone out of proportion.

Reina has further said that Suarez is facing difficult times and has the ability to do well in any team that takes him.

Liverpool also fears that they will lose their striker as Suarez plans to leave for a foreign nation this summer, which provoked Reina to believe that the yardstick for all the players is not the same and there is hypocrisy involved in the whole matter.

Meanwhile, Paris-Saint-Germain (PSG) and Bayern Munich are ready to sign up the striker for 35 million pound, the report added. (ANI)
