video: luis suárez bite prompts club fine and pfa anger management offer

Written by on April 22, 2013

Luis Suárez has confirmed that he has been fined by Liverpool for biting the Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during the 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday. The striker, who earns £120,000 per week with add-ons, has asked for the money to be donated to the Hillsborough Family Support Group.

Suárez said on his Twitter feed: “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.”

The Professional Footballers’ Association has confirmed that Suárez will be offered anger management counselling for the incident. It is the latest in a series of controversies in Suarez’s career – including a previous biting incident in the Netherlands and an eight-match ban for racist abuse – and the PFA chief executive, Gordon Taylor, said the players’ union would offer the striker help to deal with his temper.

Taylor said: “There is no doubting his football ability, that’s why it is so disappointing and embarrassing when he lets himself down. We have to work hard on anger management now. We have trained counsellors in this field and we will be offering their services to Liverpool and the player to try to improve matters.”
