Uruguay fans welcome home Liverpool firebrand Suarez

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was given a hero's welcome home by Uruguay fans last night.

The Daily Mail reports Suarez received a hero's welcome when he appeared on the balcony of his home after being kicked out of the World Cup.

The shamed striker was sent back to Uruguay after being hit with a nine-game international ban and four-month suspension from all football for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini last Tuesday.

But standing on the deck of his home in Lagomar, near Montevideo, the 27-year-old looked unperturbed by the ordeal.

Some might say he even looked happy to be home, giving a thumbs-up to admirers who had gathered.
