Liverpool fine Luis Suárez for bite on Branislav Ivanovic
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez reveals he has been fined by the 18-time English champions after biting Branislav Ivanovic
Luis Suárez has been fined by Liverpool after biting Branislav Ivanovic in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea.
The 26-year-old clashed with the Serbia international at Anfield before popping up to score an equaliser in the seventh minute of stoppage time in a 2-2 draw with the Blues.
The Uruguayan striker took to his Twitter account following the stalemate to apologise for his actions and telephoned the Blues centre-half to express his remorse.
And the former Ajax man revealed on Monday that the 18-time English champions have fined the striker for his actions, with Suárez requesting the money be donated to the Hillsborough Family Support Group.
“For my unacceptable behaviour yesterday the club has fined me today, I have asked the club to donate the money to the Hillsborough Family Support Group for the inconvenience I have created to the Liverpool fans and to Ivanovic,” he said on his Twitter account.
Suárez has scored 51 goals in 96 appearances in all competitions after completing a £22.75m move to Liverpool from Ajax in January 2011.
