Tebas calls for Suarez ban

Luis Suarez should face further punishment for his attempts to be booked in the closing stages against Girona, according to La Liga president Javier Tebas.

The chief of the league has criticised the Uruguayan striker for attempting to pick up a yellow card which would allow his suspension to cover a clash against Las Palmas, before returning for the Atletico Madrid clash.

“Luis Suarez should be punished for intentionally looking for a ban,” Tebas told Cadena Ser.

“Had he received his fifth yellow he would then be cleared to play in a crucial game, but that is not something we want in this league.

“I will do everything that I can to keep cheating and deceit out of football, out of La Liga – that is what we must aim to do.

“Pep Guardiola? He must be punished for his ideas (to wear a yellow ribbon) – football and politics should not mix.”
