Luis Suarez, who has recently served an eight match ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra, has the full support of the fans of his former team, Nacional. Nacional are Suarez’s local team and he started playing for them when he was 14-years-old, so, like Liverpool, have stuck their head in the sand over the fact he is guilty of racial abuse.
The banners say: “Ferguson, wash your mouth out before you talk about Sir Suarez”, “Suarez, Uruguay is with you” and “Suarez is Nacional, Evra must be Penarol”. Penarol are Nacional’s rivals.
The FA have to accept their share of blame in this situation after allowing Liverpool FC to continue to spread the message that Suarez has done no wrong. Kenny Dalglish and Suarez have repeatedly claimed that he is innocent despite not even appealing the decision. The FA have let this to go on without punishment, allowing there to be some doubt over the fact he’s guilty, which means Nacional and Liverpool fans vilify Patrice Evra.
