Thompson on Suarez

Luis apologised, then we had the club apologising and now they've fined him very quickly. In the FA's eyes, they will look at Liverpool Football Club as having acted in the right manner as befits our club.

But in terms of thinking, 'We may get away with a lesser ban', I don't think anything like that's been done.

Luis Suarez will get a massive ban, 10 games plus or maybe even more, maybe a monthly ban as Eric Cantona got. We have to be willing and ready to accept that.
