Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is suspended for ten matches after violent conduct charge
Luis Suarez has been suspended for a total of ten matches after an Independent Regulatory Commission today ruled on a charge of violent conduct.

A three-person Independent Regulatory Commission today upheld The FA’s claim that a suspension of three matches was clearly insufficient and the player will serve a further seven first-team matches in addition to the standard three. The suspension begins with immediate effect.

This follows an incident with Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in Sunday’s fixture at Anfield.

Get ready for pointless acrimony from all the usual places, and all the closely monitored instances of hypocrisy, and why the FA should be disbanded, and why Suarez should be sent to prison, and on and on and on and on and on.
