Uruguay's Luis Suarez was hit with the biggest ban imposed at a World Cup Thursday as FIFA threw the book at one of football's most talented but controversial players for biting an opponent.The sport's governing body suspended Suarez from all football-related activity for four months and ruled he could not play in Uruguay's next nine competitive games, meaning he is unlikely to appear in non-friendly matches for his country until 2016 . The four-month ban means Suarez will have to sit out the first two months of the next English season and he will miss Liverpool's opening Premier League and Champions League matches.The 27-year-old striker must immediately leave his Uruguay teammates who are preparing for a World Cup last-16 match against Colombia Saturday. Suarez is one of the most gifted players in world football, scoring 31 league goals in 33 games for Liverpool last season.Suarez is also one of the game's most troubled players and has been banned twice previously for biting opponents.As well as the biting cases, Suarez was banned for one match at the last World Cup in South Africa for a deliberate handball that cost Ghana a match-winning goal in a quarterfinal.
