Suarez will not be in Liverpool 2014-15 team photo ... regardless of future

Suarez Dribbling

Luis Suarez is banned from all football activities and entering football stadiums for four months.

Reaction has been mixed over the last couple of days to the punishment handed out by FIFA to Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan striker has been banned for nine international games and four months from all football activity for biting a player in front of the entire world.

He sunk his teeth into Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini in the final group stage game against Italy - which was broadcast all over the world.

It is now the third time he has been caught deploying his gnashes into an opponent. He was seen biting Ottman Bakkal of PSV Eindhoven whilst an Ajax player and of course famously tried an arm of Branislav Ivanovic in 2013.

Many feel he has got off lightly, others feel he has been harshly punished. Many feel sorry for a man who clearly has some trouble handling his temper in the heat of the moment. Whilst others have little sympathy for a silly man who should know better than to bite other human beings, whatever the circumstance.

But it is emerging this weekend that Suarez will not be able to have any involvement in Liverpool's official team photo for the 2014-15 season - a decision which has divided opinion on Twitter, and actually seen a growth in support for the disgraced striker.

The photo usually takes place inside Anfield, where Suarez is not currently allowed to enter. Regardless of that he is banned from any commercial activity involving football for the duration of his ban. Liverpool are essentially not allowed to take his photo until the ban ends - meaning he will not be present for the annual tradition as things stand.

An appeal may change this fact, while his own future will also do that. Real Madrid and Barcelona are still reportedly keen on his services - so it looks increasingly likely that Suarez will not be in the team photo this season, regardless of his future.
