He called the imposition of a four-month ban "fascist" in an interview with a TV crew as he welcomed the squad back from Brazil.

When asked if his remarks were on the record and could be published, Mujica replied: "For my part, sure."

Earlier in the week, he said that the punishment doled out to Suarez would be "an eternal shame" for the World Cup.

Uruguay captain Diego Lugano had also criticised the ban in strong terms, calling it "barbarity".
