Liverpool will not appeal Suarez’s 8-match ban

The English Football Association says Liverpool will not appeal

against Luis Suarez’s eight-match ban for repeatedly racially

abusing an opponent during a match.

The decision means the suspension will start with immediate

effect, and Suarez will miss Tuesday’s Premier League match at

Manchester City.

The Uruguay striker was also fined 40,000 pounds for hurling

racial insults at Manchester United defender Patrice Evra in

October during a 1-1 draw at Anfield.
