Luis Suarez Declared a Scapegoat by Coach

The coach of the Uruguayan team, Oscar Tabarez said that Luis Suarez was an obvious scapegoat of the World Cup.

The four month quarantine sentence slapped on Suarez for biting an opponent was said to be too harsh and draconian a punishment by the sympathetic coach.

Tabarez went on to say that even a scapegoat has certain advantages that accrue to it, but Suarez was being treated worse than a scapegoat.

"Many times you forget that the scapegoat is a person, who has rights," said Tabarez during a press conference ahead of Uruguay's last-16 game against Colombia on Saturday.

The coach spoke of how despite his human mistakes, Suarez was an excellent player who had made some very important contributions to the game of football.

"In this specific case of Luis Suarez, despite the faults he may have committed, he has made significant contributions to football from the pitch," said Tabarez.

On this basis, he ought to have been let off lightly with a slap on the wrist. Coach Tabarez refused to be baited by the journalists and reporters.

He furthermore spoke of how the mass media had a big hand in all of this unnecessary incrimination. He said that Suarez's punishment was "more focused on the opinions of the media".

Suarez had been punished due to the brutal act he had engaged in recently. He had bitten Italian player Giorgio Chiellini on the shoulder.

However, Suarez has friends in high places. And one of them happens to be coach Tabarez. Tabarez has decided to step down from the committee he was made a head of by FIFA in protest at the punishment of Suarez.

Suarez has a history of violence. He has already bitten opponents twice in a row before the latest incident. Such vicious and savage behavior that borders on the barbaric should not go unpunished.

If it does than anything goes and chaos will be the ultimate result of the leniency. However, Tabarez is adamant that it was not Suarez’s fault alone and that the punishment he was sentenced to was too excessive.

"After we saw the images (of the incident), we saw that there was a possibility that the participants in that act -- Giorgio Chiellini, the Italian footballer, and Luis Suarez -- would both be punished," said the 67-year-old Tabarez.

"But we never thought we would learn what we found out about the details of the decision reached, which was of an excessive severity.

"And a decision which obviously is much more focused on the opinions of the media, who took that as the only topic of the (post-match) press conference.

"I don't know what nationality they were, but they all spoke English."

The group that delivered the verdict are said to have been a biased lot. And Tabarez as well the entire Uruguayan team is behind Suarez on this one.

They vow to side with him and back him in his fight for justice. Although justice can be delayed, it cannot be denied for long.
