Luis Suarez Receives 10 Game Ban For Biting Branislav Ivanovic

Capture

Luis Suarez has received a 10 game ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic last Sunday.

The FA has released a statement on it's website regarding the ban.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is suspended for ten matches after violent conduct charge
Luis Suarez has been suspended for a total of ten matches after an Independent Regulatory Commission today ruled on a charge of violent conduct.

A three-person Independent Regulatory Commission today upheld The FA’s claim that a suspension of three matches was clearly insufficient and the player will serve a further seven first-team matches in addition to the standard three. The suspension begins with immediate effect.

This follows an incident with Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in Sunday’s fixture at Anfield.

The Liverpool forward had accepted a charge of violent conduct but had denied The FA’s claim that the standard three-match sanction was insufficient for the offence.

The incident was not seen by the match officials and has therefore been retrospectively reviewed

Suarez now has until Friday to appeal the ban being more than the standard 3 games.
