The Court of Arbitration for Sport rejected Uruguay forward Luis Suárez appeal but allowed him to train saying that deciding otherwhise would have “an impact on his activity after the end of the suspension”.

The panel determined that FIFA’s decision to ban Suarez from taking part in any football activity for four months and nine matches stands stands, “however, the 4-month suspension will apply to official matches only and no longer to other football-related activities (such as training, promotional activities and administrative matters).”

“Banning Suarez from training would have meant the ban 'would still have an impact on his activity after the end of the suspension,” the Court said in a statement, allowing the forward to begin training with Barcelona club, after his recent transfer.

Suárez was sanctioned by FIFA for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini on the final match of Group D in 2014 Brazil World Cup. He was banned from all football-related activity and fined for over 100,000 dollars.

Suárez had filed a first appeal that was denied by FIFA in July.
