Uruguay’s President Jose Mujica has attacked Fifa over its four-month ban of Luis Suarez, calling the organisation “a bunch of old sons of bitches”
Incensed President Jose Mujica has lambasted Fifa bosses as “sons of bitches” who meted out “fascist” treatment to striker Luis Suarez for biting an Italian defender at the World Cup.
President Mujica made the comment as he welcomed Uruguay’s team back from the World Cup on Sunday, putting his hand over his mouth in mock horror at the expletive.
He also referred to Fifa’s stiff penalty on Uruguay’s star striker as “fascist,” though he said that Suarez could have been sanctioned with a lesser sentence.
The President’s comments reflect the angry mood in Uruguay, a small country that has won the World Cup twice.
Uruguay, playing without Suarez, was eliminated from the World Cup on Saturday with a loss to Colombia.
