FC Barcelona to appeal to Disciplinary Committee for Sports over Luis Suárez ban
After the Spanish Football Federation’s appeals committee rejected the appeal, the Club will take matters up with the Disciplinary Committee for Sports
11:00PM Monday 11 Jan
FC Barcelona will file an appeal to the Spanish government’s Disciplinary Committee for Sports (TAD) over the two-match ban handed to Luis Suárez in the aftermath of the Copa del Rey Round of 16 first-leg against RCD Espanyol.
The Club will take the matter to TAD after seeing the initial appeal rejected by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).
In the appeal, the Club reiterates that the player, by his own confession, did not say the offensive words which were attributed to him after the game. The two-match ban would affect the next two Copa del Rey matches, the first of which comes this Wednesday against Espanyol and, should Barça progress, the Uruguayan would miss the first-leg of the quarter-final.
