La Liga’s president Javier Tebas had a few choice words for Barcelona’s Luis Suarez this week. Suarez was seen in Barcelona’s 6-1 win over Girona seemingly trying to get his fifth yellow of the season. This would in turn get his ban over with before Barcelona’s key match with Atletico Madrid.

The suspension would take place against Las Palmas which would be much better for Barcelona obviously. Tebas was not a fan of the actions and made it clear that he will seek a ban for Suarez.

“He deserves a ban for trying to get his fifth yellow card,” the LaLiga chief said. “I’m going to work hard to ensure that football is free of tricks and cheating.”

How all of this plays out will be fascinating. The actions didn’t end up working out for Suarez and it would be somewhat strange for a punishment to take place regarding a foul that never resulted in a card.
