Luis Suarez charged with violent conduct by FA after biting Branislav Ivanovic
Question of the Day
Luis Suarez faces a lengthy suspension after being charged with violent conduct by the Football Association on Monday.
The Liverpool striker bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on the arm during an English Premier League game on Sunday. He was not penalized, as game officials didn’t see the incident, but the outcry was immediate.
The governing body on Monday said on its website that “it is The FA’s contention that the standard punishment of three matches that would otherwise apply is clearly insufficient in these circumstances.”
Three years ago, while playing for Dutch side Ajax, Suarez drew a seven-match ban after biting a player. The FA presumably will take that prior offense into consideration when determining a punishment.
Liverpool moved preemptively to fine Suarez an undisclosed amount Monday for “unacceptable behavior.”
