1/2 For my unacceptable behaviour yesterday the club has fined me today, I have asked the club to donate the money to...
2/2 ...to the Hillsborough Family Support Group for the inconvenience I have created to the Liverpool fans and to Ivanovic.
I've just spoken to Ivanovic on the phone and I could apologise directly to him. Thanks for accepting.
Liverpool fans seemed to be quite forgiving toward Luis Suarez this evening, with some of them even denying he actually bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, despite his apology.
Liverpool Football Club has responded to the incident, in which striker Luis Suarez appeared to bite Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during their Premier League match at Anfield.
The club's managing director Ian Ayre commented:
Luis has made an unreserved apology for his actions today. His behaviour is not befitting of any player wearing a Liverpool shirt and Luis is aware that he has let himself and everyone associated with the club down. We will deal with the matter internally and await any action from the FA.
I'm sad for what happened this afternoon, I apologize Ivanovic and all football world for my inexcusable behaviour. I'm so sorry about it!!
Former Liverpool player and manager Graeme Souness has labelled Luis Suarez's apparent bite on Branislav Ivanovic during Liverpool's clash with Chelsea today as "embarrassing" and believes the Uruguayan is now in the "last chance saloon" as a Reds player.
