The Uruguay striker was given the suspension after he bit Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

A subsequent appeal was rejected by FIFA but CAS will now consider the case.

Barcelona paid Liverpool £75m for Suarez but he is currently banned from even training with his new team-mates.

The 27-year-old is due to return to action at the end of October for ‘El Clasico' against Real Madrid but may return sooner if the appeal is successful.

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
