Jose Mourinho is convinced that Luis Suarez deserves the four-month ban handed to him for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini.

The Liverpool forward was given a nine-game international suspension and banned from all football-related activity for four months for biting Chiellini during Uruguay’s World Cup win over Italy last week.

It is the third time that the 27-year-old has been punished for biting an opponent during a match – and the Chelsea manager feels that the length of the ban is merited.

“I think the punishment is deserved because it is an accumulation of the same negative act on the football pitch,” Mourinho told Yahoo.

“What I really don’t like in football is the stadium ban. What’s the problem for Suarez to be in the stadium, in the middle of the Uruguay supporters watching the game between his country and Colombia?

“It’s too hard, it’s something that I really don’t understand.

“If his punishment comes as a sequence of three similar mistakes in three different situations, it is something that he deserves. It has to stop.”
