Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has revealed he has been fined by the club for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.

The Uruguay international has requested the money be donated to the Hillsborough Family Support Group, which marked the 24th anniversary of the tragedy with a service at Anfield last Monday at which Suarez was present with his team-mates.

"For my unacceptable behaviour yesterday the club has fined me today," the 26-year-old wrote on Twitter.

"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."

Suarez will be offered anger management counselling after biting Chelsea defender Ivanovic, the Professional Footballers' Association have revealed.

Suarez yesterday apologised for his "inexcusable behaviour" after the incident during the 2-2 draw at Anfield yesterday that has left the Uruguay international facing the prospect of a lengthy ban.

It is the latest in a series of unsavoury incidents in Suarez's career - including a previous biting incident in Holland and an eight-match ban for racist abuse - and PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor said the players' union would offer the striker help to deal with his temper.

Taylor told Press Association Sport: "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."

However, it seems more likely Liverpool would be more likely to chose to utilise the services of their own in-house sports psychologist Dr Steve Peters.

He has been working one day a week at the club's training Melwood training ground for most of the season, having enjoyed success most notably with Great Britain's Olympic gold medal-winning cyclists like Sir Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton.

Former Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy has also credited Peters with helping him change his behaviour for the better.
