You know you've managed to upset an entire country when their president calls you 'a bunch of old sons of bitches' in public. That's how Uruguay's president Jose Mujica described FIFA on Sunday at a reception for the Uruguay side that lost 2-0 to Colombia in the Round of 16. You won't be surprised to find out that he's talking about Luis Suarez, suspended for nine international matches and given a four-month blanket ban from the sport after biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini.
While it's amusing to hear the President of Uruguay go after FIFA, it's unlikely to be particularly helpful to the national team's cause -- they keep shooting themselves in the foot in reaction to Suarez Bite #3, and with an appeal currently open one would imagine a degree of contrition might be be helpful in getting the ban (President Mujica described it as 'fascist') reduced. Insulting FIFA? Probably less helpful.
But at least the whole country's being consistent, I guess.
