You won't believe what Uruguay president called Fifa officials
It seems that Uruguay simply can't keep quiet when it comes to Luis Suarez and his ban for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup - even the country's president has weighed in on the issue.
Mr Jose Mujica was at a reception for La Celeste after their return from Brazil when he branded Fifa as "a bunch of old sons of bitches" when asked by state TV about the talismanic forward's four-month ban from all things football.
After feigning shock at his own comment by covering his mouth, the 79-year-old gave journalists the green-light to run his quote by saying "publish it".
The 79-year-old labelled the sanction, which includes a nine-match suspension for Uruguay, as a "fascist ban".
While Mujica voiced out what most people have been wanting to say about the men of the world's governing body of football, he probably chose the wrong context for his foul-mouthed tirade.
The over-the-top quotes continue with Uruguay skipper Diego Lugano, he who calls videos of the Suarez incident "an approximation".
Breach of human rights
The defender was quoted in the British media saying: "It's a breach of human rights that a player cannot go into a stadium where there are 80,000 people or into a hotel with his team-mates, that he cannot work for four months.
"He has committed a crime, but this (ban) is barbarity.
"Not even a criminal would receive this penalty."
Perhaps someone should tell Diego that an inmate on death row might have an entirely different opinion about criminal penalties...
Of course, these guys are defending a player who has been found guilty of biting an opponent for the third time in his career and defended himself from the latest incident on world football's biggest stage by saying he had "lost his balance and ended up falling on my opponent".
