Suarez offered Kosovo lifeline

Belgrade - A Kosovo football team said on Monday that it would offer a temporary home to Uruguay's fallen star Luis Suarez during his long suspension from football.

According to the Pristina daily Bota Sot, Hajvalia Pristina will offer €30 000 to Suarez's club, Liverpool, and a monthly wage of €1 500 to Suarez until his FIFA ban for biting expires.

"Suarez can't play for the next four months.

"But since Kosovo is not recognized (by FIFA), I believe he can play here and I have prepared an offer for Liverpool," the newspaper quoted Hajvalia director Xhavit Pacolli as saying.

FIFA banned Suarez for biting the Italian Giorgio Chiellini in Uruguay's game against Italy at the World Cup.
