Montevideo: Uruguay Football Association chief Wilmar Valdez said on Wednesday there is insufficient proof to sanction star striker Luiz Suarez for biting an Italian defender.

"We believe that there is not sufficient evidence to truly sanction Luis," Valdez told Channel 10 television.

"It has to be clear and on the video that FIFA gave us we think that it is not really clear," Valdez said after presenting a case for Suarez to a FIFA hearing in Rio de Janeiro. (Related: Twitter sinks teeth into Suarez after World Cup 'bite')
