Is this Suarez's chance to play despite four-month ban?

The Liverpool forward could reportedly swerve his four-month ban by playing in Kosovo where FIFA jurisdiction does not apply.

Luis Suarez has been presented with a way to get around his extended football ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup from the unlikeliest of sources.



As reported by the Telegraph, Kosovan Superleague Hajvalia want to take the 27-year-old on a short term deal. This would be made possible by the fact that Kosovo are as yet members of FIFA and are thus not governed by their sanctions and laws.


The caveat for Suarez is that he would have to accept a huge reduction in his wages as Hajvalia would only be willing to pay him £1,200 a month. Liverpool too would expect to only receive £24,000 for the deal.


Hajvalia director, Xhavit Pacolli, told Kosovo daily Sport Plus, 'As we are not part of Fifa yet, I think he can play in Kosovo, so we have an offer that we will send to Liverpool. This is the maximum we can offer.'


'We offered 30,000 euros and a salary of 1500 for each month. This might sound ridiculous to him, but that is all we can do.If he is willing to come and play for us, he is welcome. As we are not part of FIFA, it would be ideal for him.'


Hajvalia finished 6th the Superleague last season, 17 points behind champions Kosova Kushtimi.


Despite Suarez's latest indiscretion potential suitors Barcelona have reportedly not been put off their chase for the Uruguayan's services.


Any deal could involve Alexis Sanchez heading in the opposite direction but much will depend on whether the player is open to the move after a blistering World Cup campaign.


Arsenal are known to be interested in the Chilean player but Liverpool hold the ace in Suarez should they allow him to leave.


Whatever happens with the player, it is unlikely we will see him turning out in Kosovo, although football is renowned for the unexpected...
