FIFA rules on the application of player bans, where they move to a new club, clearly state that any sanctions would be transferred with a player to any new league.
The ruling means the 10 match ban given to Liverpool striker Luis Suarez would still apply if he was sold to another club in the summer.
Any disciplinary suspension imposed on a player prior to a transfer must be enforced or applied by the new association at which the player is registered. The former association is obliged to notify the new association of any sanction in writing and upon issuing the ITC [International Transfer Certifcate].
Luis Suarez failed to "fully appreciate the gravity and seriousness" of his bite on Branislav Ivanovic, an FA report concluded.
The FA says it intends to punish Suarez more than the usual three games. Well why is it? He didn't hurt anyone. Ivanovic is not in plaster.
Liverpool had a real chance to steal the moral high ground. Among fans I heard irritation that Suarez had stained the club’s name again.
