Prime Minister David Cameron has had his say on the controversy surrounding Liverpool striker Luis Suarez by claiming that he has set the "most appalling example" by biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
While Cameron has claimed that the length of punishment is down to the Football Association, the politician has admitted that he is concerned for young people that look up to the Reds forward.
"I have a seven-year-old son who loves football, loves watching football and when players behave like this, it sets the most appalling example to young people in our country," Cameron told BBC Radio Five Live.
When asked if a 10-match suspension was appropriate, Cameron said: "That's up to the FA. It's not my decision. The FA make the decision, they are entirely independent and that is the way it should work.
"But if you are asking me as a dad and as a human being do I think we should have tough penalties when football players behave like this? Yes I think we should, but it is entirely a matter for the FA. I think it is serious, when we are trying to bring up our children up properly and when they love football, they do look at football players as role models and we have to recognise that."
