We’ve all been watching Luis Suárez’s case very carefully. The Uruguayan soccer star bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini in one of the most dramatic World Cup games on June 24. Uruguay ended up beating Italy 1-0 and advancing into the round of 16, as Italy was eliminated from the tournament. Eventually, Uruguay lost to Colombia and were also eliminated. Suárez was banned from all soccer related activities for four months and from nine international matches. FIFA also fined him with $112,000 USD.

Reactions quickly followed as a lot of people deemed the ban an exaggeration. Even Chiellini himself called it “excessive.” Suárez issued an apology on his social media accounts, and Chiellini replied that everything was good between them. However, there’s someone who doesn’t seem to be very happy about this whole situation in general, and that is José Mujica, Uruguay’s president. The commander in chief was at the airport this weekend greeting the Uruguayan team after they arrived in the country following their World Cup elimination.

A reporter at the scene asked Mujica his thoughts on Suárez’s ban, and his response was not what you’d expect from a president. “The FIFA is a bunch of old sons of b*tches,” Mujica said, quickly covering his mouth, realizing his words were not very presidential. The reporter asked Mujica if he could publish what he had just said, to which the president agreed. “Publish it, if it’s up to me.” He went on to say, “They could have punished him without these fascist sanctions.”

The first lady, Sen. Lucía Topolanski, was also asked her opinion on the matter. She said she “adheres to the words of the president.” Scroll down to watch the video of Uruguay president José Mujica calling FIFA “sons of b*tches.”
