Suarez Bites Ivanovic – Could Miss Newcastle Game


In the game this afternoon at Anfield between Liverpool and Chelsea, which ended in a 2-2 draw, there is TV evidence that clearly shows Luis Suarez biting Chelsea defender Ivanovic in the second half, and if the FA has any guts (that’s debatable) they will review the evidence and ban the striker for at least three games for dangerous play and/or ungentlemanly conduct

Luis Suarez – in action against Newcastle

As soon as Ivanovic fell to the ground in the incident, he showed his arm and made a biting gesture towards the referee, and there is clear TV video that shows Suarez did exactly that.

Liverpool certainly came out with more bite in the second half – but that was ridiculous.

The referee didn’t see it, so it leaves the door open for the FA to take retroactive action and if they do that, then Suarez will miss the game at St. James’ Park next Saturday.

And it’s not the first time he’s been accused of biting another player, and in November, 2010 when at Ajax, he was accused of biting a PSV player Otman Bakkal’s shoulder. There were appeals to the referee in the game but he simply waved play on.

But Luis Suarez was subsequently given a seven-match ban for biting PSV midfielder Otman Bakkal.

We expect the same thing to happen this time – and Luis Suarez’ season should be over.

Luis also handled the ball from a corner in the game today, to gift Chelsea with their second goal from a penalty, but then 30 seconds past the six minutes of stoppage time, Suarez headed in the Liverpool equalizer from a cross.

So maybe the biggest three incidents in the game included the Uruguayan this afternoon – and we wonder if we’ll hear Brendan Rodgers defend him this time?

Here’s the video of the bite – and there may be better ones coming out of the incident – here’s the bite from another view.

Sorry I spelled Ivanovic completely wrong when I first brought out this article – oh well. 😀

    How can he possibly be banned?

    The officials saw the incident, so despite them clearly not seeing the full extent of it they cannot take retrospective action.

    That’s what Newcastle were told after the Wigan match.

    For biting, a Rugby player would be given 6 months, i have no idea why the game of football tolerates this type of behaviour, i have an argument at work with somebody, bite them, i’m sacked, simple.

    Football has some funny ways of looking at things.

    depends what the officials say.

    if they saw they never saw anything of the bite then can be punished, they saw the haidara tackle just not properly.

    he’s lucky that ivanovich didn’t chin him, wouldn’t mess with him.

    He can be banned even if the ref saw it. In exceptional circumstances the fa can act, they did it when ben thatcher crushed mendes for city vs pompey a few years ago…

    it wasn’t like he bumped in then left his teeth there. he actually stopped, grabbed him, thought about it then bit him.

    that’s his last liverpool game

    I think the official did see the incident though – he spoke to them both and told Ivanovic to get on with it. We’ll see I guess.

    I agree on the previous post though – I wouldn’t want Ronaldo playing for us if he liked to bite people.

    superShearer . If they appeal it he could see out the season for them. Then take his ban with him to Man City.

    not a chance he will get away with this, the FA punished him over he evra racist abuse so i think they will be firm with this too.

    expect him to get a 3 game ban at least, possibly 6/7

    They’ll take it on the chin for him, they won’t sell him for this… Without him they have nothing…

    Reckon we lucky cause he’ll get banned for this for about 6 games so I doubt he’ll play against us which looks like a bloody good thing

    wrong mate.

    According to the FA Disciplinary Rules if a player receives 5 cautions between the first day of the season and 31st December they will be suspended for a period of 1 match .
    If a player receives a 5th caution after the 31st December they will be warned as to their future conduct.
    If a player receives 10 cautions between the first day of the season and the second Sunday in April they will be suspended for a period of 2 matches.

    They wont sell him because of this but i think he will be sold. Clubs want him and he will want to leave to pursue his career at a champions league club.

    This will just be a reason, coupled with money, to convince the fans it was the right call.

    Petr Cech is wearing a head guard, Fernando Torres is wearing a nose guard. And next week Luis Suarez will be wearing a Hannibal Lecter mask.

    Getting bit is bad enough -but I imagine getting bit by those giant rodent like buck teeth would cause a greater injury.
    He needs a ban and upon his return should have to wear a muzzle for three games.
