Suarez charged over racist comment made towards Evra

In the past month, football supporters have been discussing incidents that involved Luis Suarez and John Terry. Both racist/abusive incidents. Manchester United left back Patrice Evra accused Suarez of making racist remarks towards him, at least 10 times during the match that ended 1-1 at Anfield.

In the last hour, the FA issued a short statement which we have quoted below. You can read the original version here.

“The FA has today charged Liverpool’s Luis Suarez following an incident that occurred during the Liverpool versus Manchester United fixture at Anfield on 15 October 2011.It is alleged that Suarez used abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards Manchester United’s Patrice Evra contrary to FA rules.  

It is further alleged that this included a reference to the ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race of Patrice Evra.

The FA will issue no further comment at this time.”

After the incident occurred, I published ‘Don’t believe everything you read – Evra never played the race card before’ explaining the Frenchman’s innocence.
