Suarez’s behaviour ‘not befitting a Liverpool player’

Liverpool have condemned striker Luis Suarez for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in yesterday’s 2-2 draw at Anfield. The club say his actions were unacceptable and will be dealt with internally.

The club’s managing director, Ian Ayre, above, who cancelled a flight to Australia to deal with the issue, said in a statement on the club’s website last night: “His behaviour is not befitting of any player wearing a Liverpool shirt.

“We will deal with the matter internally and await any action from the FA.”

Faced with pictures of the striker actions, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said the striker’s reputation would count for nothing when the club conducted its review.

“Players are always replaceable, it does not matter how good they think they are,” said Rodgers

 With the incident certain to be reviewed by the FA, the striker, who scored a 97th minute equaliser for his side, may have played his last match of the season.

Suarez last night issued an apology, saying he had tried to contact Ivanovic to talk with the defender personally. MORE
