The Uruguayan FA will defend Luis Suarez from biting allegations by saying images of tooth marks on Giorgio Chiellini’s shoulder were photoshopped.
The controversial forward, who is a transfer target for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, appeared to bite the Italian defender after a coming together between the players during yesterday’s World Cup match between the two countries.
Following the encounter, won 1-0 by the South Americans, FIFA announced they had opened an investigation into the incident. Uruguay have until 21.00 BST to respond to the allegations.
Reports state he could face a ban of at least four matches if found guilty, but it has emerged that the country’s FA will claim that the real, unaltered images of the incident bear no signs of any teeth marks on Chiellini.
