Uruguay forward Luis Suarez’s four-month playing ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini has been upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) although he will be allowed train with his new club Barcelona.

CAS said in a statement that it had removed the clause which banned the 27-year-old from “any football-related activity” following an appeal by the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) on Suarez’s behalf.

The Barcelona player remains ineligible to play in official matches during the four-month period and his nine-game international ban also stays in force following the notorious incident during the World Cup group game on June 24 which Uruguay won 1-0.

“The sanctions imposed on the player by Fifa have been generally confirmed” CAS said in a statement. “However the 4-month suspension will apply to official matches only and no longer to other football-related activities (such as training promotional activities and administrative matters).”

“It has however considered that the stadium ban and the ban from “any football-related activity” were excessive given that such measures are not appropriate to sanction the offence committed by the player and would still have an impact on his activity after the end of the suspension.”

Suarez’s legal team said they had successfully argued that Fifa had misapplied its own rules when considering the case and the sanction it imposed on other football-related activities was disproportionate. “As a result Suarez is now permitted to train and attend matches with his Barcelona team mates in preparation for the new season” his lawyers said in a statement.

“I expected something different although not much” said AUF president Wilmar Valdez in a statement.

“CAS is a totally independent tribunal and this is to do with the way people see things it’s a cultural matter.
