Uruguay football manager Oscar Tabarez has resigned from his position on the TSG - a group of experts that analyses international matches - because of the punishment given to striker Luis Suarez, who he said had been made a "scapegoat". In a 15-minute statement, Tabarez said:
It is not wise or prudent to be in an organisation with people, those who exerted pressure to promote this decision and those who rendered the award, who managed procedures and values very different to those I have.
Therefore, in the coming days, I will file my resignation to that position formally.
If upheld, the four-month Luis Suarez ban from football would see him miss 16 matches, including nine Premier League games.
Big brands are continuing to exploit Luis Suarez's latest biting incident with a series of adverts.
Suarez needs to be frustrated on the training ground so he can learn how to respond differently, a sports psychologist has told ITV News.
