Liverpool Fine Suarez For Ivanovic Bite – More To Come From The FA?

By on April 22, 2013

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been fined for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during yesterday’s 2-2 draw at Anfield.

The Uruguayan striker set up Daniel Sturridge’s goal shortly after half time and scored the equaliser 6 minutes into injury time but hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons once again after a bizarre altercation with Ivanovic midway through the second period.

After clashing in the box, replay’s showed Suarez had bitten the Chelsea defender on the arm but escaped action as the officials had missed the incident. Liverpool condemned the players actions shortly after full-time and the striker issued an apology.

Now Suarez has revealed on his official Twitter account on Monday morning that he’s received a fine and has asked for the money to be donated to the Hillsborough Family Support Group:

The fine amount is not clear but it’s likely to be around two weeks wages. The FA are still to confirm what action they will be taking against Suarez. So far they have offered him anger management classes but a lengthy ban is expected to be handed out and it’s unlikely he’ll feature again for Liverpool this season.

What do you think about Liverpool fining Suarez? Should the punishment have been more severe? Get involved in the comments section below.

    U call that mistake @ yusuf, I believe that he does it intentionally and FA should take proper discipline he deserves according to the rules and regulations of PFA.

    That wasnt a mistake Suarez is a cannibal he did the same thing at ajax and knew exactly wat he doing with Ivanovich! If u remember the past international break he actually punched a defender in the face was that a mistake too? Suarez is a scumbag and shud be banned for a very long time!
