Luis Suarez: No further action over Jara incident

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez's recent brushes with authority can make him a better player, according to Uruguay Football Association president Sebastian Bauza.

The AUF have revealed the 26-year-old will not face any action from FIFA for an alleged punch on Gonzalo Jara during a World Cup qualifier against Chile in March.

Suarez is currently serving a 10-match domestic ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic, but Bauza believes both that and the FIFA investigation will ultimately be beneficial to the player.

"It's very good news for Luis, the national team and for the whole group," said Bauza of FIFA's decision not to punish Suarez for the Jara incident.

"We understand that from now on, Luis should realise that he will be watched from all sides.

"We hope that this experience, when added to others, will be useful so that he becomes the player will all want him to be because we have no doubt of his quality as a footballer and a human being."

A statement on the AUF website revealed no further FIFA action would be taken against Suarez.

"The officers of the Association's defence of Luis Suarez and the unjustified attempt to subject him to disciplinary action has been successfully completed," said the statement.

"The decision of the FIFA disciplinary committee resolved that 'the matter does not require the intervention of the FIFA disciplinary committee and therefore this procedure is declared closed'."

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.
