London: Luis Suarez's "unprecedented" four-month ban from football for biting was harsh but justified, the British press, which the striker has accused of conspiring against him, said on Friday.

Suarez, who plays for Premier League club Liverpool, will no longer be Uruguay's star player in the 2014 World Cup after football body FIFA banned him from "football-related activities" for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during a Group D game on Tuesday.

The ban will also prevent Suarez from playing or training with Liverpool until the four months are up - and the British press speculated that his notorious reputation could damage his career.
