Biter Suarez offered Kosovo contract

6:06 am on 1 July 2014

A club in Kosovo has offered Uruguay and Liverpool footballer Luis Suarez 1,500 euros ($NZ 2300) a month to boost their forward line while he serves his ban for biting.

Kosovo is not covered by Suarez's worldwide suspension as it is not an official member of UEFA or FIFA so the disgraced striker could theoretically play in their Super League.

Kosovo side Hajvalia made the proposition in a letter to the Uruguayan's Premier League club Liverpool.

Pacolli said his team could offer 1,500 ($NZ 2300) euros per month, while Liverpool would be compensated with 30,000 euros ($NZ 47,000) for the four months Suarez would play in Kosovo.

Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008.

Although it has been recognised by more than 100 countries, it has yet to win its spot in a number of international organisations.

Uruguay has not recognised Kosovo.

Suarez was sent home from the World Cup for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini in Uruguay's final Group D match.

He was given a total four-month ban from football on top of a nine-game international suspension.
