A week after biting Giorgio Chiellini and earning a four-month ban from all football, Uruguay's Luis Suarez admits his guilt and apologises.PT1M52S http://www.canberratimes.com.au/action/externalEmbeddedPlayer?id=d-3b4vo 620 349 July 1, 2014
A club in Kosovo has offered Luis Suarez 1500 euros ($2250) 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 Suarez could theoretically play in their Super League.
Kosovo side Hajvalia made the proposition in a letter to the Uruguayan's Premier League club Liverpool.

"It will be a huge step for us to be able to have such a renowned footballer in Kosovo," Hajvalia's president Xhavit Pacolli said.
"It will mean a lot not just to us, but to Kosovo as a whole," he said.
Pacolli said his team could offer 1500 euros per month, while Liverpool would be compensated with 30,000 euros ($44,998) for the four months Suarez would play in Kosovo.
"This amount might seem comical for him but this is the most we are able to offer," Pacolli said.
He added that the offer "has a much bigger importance for us than for him."
"We hope that he would accept to play here at least one game, just to show us what world class football is," Pacolli said.
Hajvalia, sixth last season, are based in a suburb of the Kosovo capital Pristina.
It is owned by music producer and millionaire folk singer Mehedin Pergjegjaj.
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.
